Hundreds of football fans took to the streets of west Belfast in cars last night to celebrate Celtic being crowned SPFL champions for the ninth season in a row.

The Falls Road was the focal point for the celebrations, with hundreds of vehicles travelling in a cavalcade, sounding their horns to celebrate the league title win, with fans hanging out of car windows and waving flags and scarves.

When Celtic were officially crowned champions after a meeting of SPFL members yesterday morning, a club statement had urged fans to celebrate at home, with mass gatherings still falling under lockdown restrictions during the Covid-19 crisis.

The PSNI said it was aware of the crowds gathering.

"Police in west Belfast are aware of a procession of vehicles in the Falls area and are monitoring the situation," it said.
