Scottish champions Celtic have suspended an astonishing 128 fans and have relocated around 250 season ticket holders seats after fans of the club caused a large amount of damage to Motherwell's ground, reports BBC Sport.

Fir Park, the home of Motherwell, was subjected to seats being ripped up, flares being tossed and smoke bombs being set off in their 5-0 defeat by Celtic.

In a time when there are fears of football returning to the old days of hooliganism and crimes being committed at grounds this is another blow to those who claim that football has progressed beyond that.

In a statement issued by the club they admitted: "These events were an embarrassment to our great football club and are absolutely indefensible...we will not allow the great name of Celtic to be damaged in this way any more. Our supporters deserve more than this."

The details of any disciplinary action taken by the SPFL are likely to come in the next few weeks.
