Police have issued the following advice ahead of this Sunday’s match in Dingwall.

Police Scotland would like to welcome football fans to the Highlands this weekend for the Ross County v Celtic fixture but urge them to enjoy themselves in a safe and responsible manner.

Thousands of fans are expected to travel for the match which kicks off at 12.30pm on Sunday, 16 April, at the Global Energy Stadium in Dingwall.

Match Commander Chief Inspector Alastair Garrow said:

"I would like to welcome the Celtic team and their fans to the Highlands and congratulate them on their success this season.

“We are looking forward to the fixture and want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable day.

“Police will be in attendance at the event and will be there to offer any help needed.

"I would urge those travelling to ensure they allow time for any potential delays and to be aware that it may be busy around the stadium before kick-off and at the end of the game.

"I am well aware that the overwhelming majority of fans will behave in an appropriate manner and be assured any violence, anti-social behaviour or disorder will not be tolerated.

"I also want to remind fans that they should not drink alcohol in the street, in the stadium, or when travelling to and from the game.

“Those who attend the ground drunk will not be permitted entry."
