CRAZY! Watch the incredible drone coverage as Glasgow is turned Green and White

Drone coverage has emerged of the incredible scenes around Glasgow Cross on Saturday as Celtic fans celebrated their side winning the 23/24 SPFL title by eight points.

Most media outlets were anticipating the race going ‘right to the wire’ but that was mainly a wish after Celtic had won 11 of the previous 12 title with five trebles thrown in for good measure.

There is absolutely no sign of complacency setting in among the Celtic support as thousands filled the Trongate towards Argyll Street with High Street just as busy with fans backed up and celebrating along the Gallowgate and London Road.

While most cities would welcome such scenes being shared worldwide through social media and provide the necessary support facilities Glasgow took a very different approach.

Rather than provide skips for rubbish and portaloos the City Council urged people not to gather, a message that was ignored by thousands of people that either live in the city or spend significantly in the hospitality sector.

As the drone coverage shows the atmosphere in mid afternoon was relaxed and good hearted, the weather helped with fans enjoying themselves with the tills ringing out for local businesses.

Later on there were a few incidents caused by drunkenness accelerated by the weather, the sort of thing that the Police will deal with at any time of the year.

Over the coming weeks Glasgow City Council will be licencing hate marches every weekend involving street closures and police expenditure. Since Catholics and Catholic Churches are the focus of the hatred there will be minimal media coverage despite the recent decision to ban a recent march in Stonehaven.

Just six weeks ago there were serious doubts over whether Celtic would secure the SPFL title.

A few thousand fans gathered at Celtic Park to cheer the team off to Ibrox guarding a one point lead having played one match more and knowing that John Beaton would referee the highly anticipated Glasgow Derby.

The 3-3 draw left both teams able to say that if they won all of their matches they would be champions, talk is incredibly cheap, especially when your manager goes on heart-thumping laps of honour while claiming a moral victory from a home draw.

Brendan Rodgers’ side won their six remaining matches, Phil Clement’s side fell to pieces with two defeats, two draws and three wins as they trailed in eight points behind the champions.

While 60,000 celebrated a title success at Celtic Park social media clips showed fans fighting inside Tynecastle with only the most loyal of bears getting their hands on the 600 tickets for away fans.
