A Celtic v Rangers battle without bubbling, hostile amphitheatre created by supporters is incomprehensible

The announcement from the Scottish government during the week that they were pausing the return of supporters to football stadiums was a blow in many ways for the national game in Scotland.

Two test events involving 300 supporters earlier in the month at Ross County and Aberdeen passed off without any issues; well, I'm guessing that was the case as nothing has been made public.

I imagine, however, if the lucky spectators had stepped out of line it would have made front-page headlines so we can take it that they adhered to all the protocols, so credit to both sets of supporters.
