Leaders of two Celtic supporters groups have both snubbed the chance to meet with Assistant Chief Constable of Strathclyde Police, Campbell Corrigan, to discuss fans' behaviour.

The Parkhead club are facing a UEFA charge relating to alleged "illicit chanting" from their fans during a Europa League game against Rennes and are also under investigation by the Scottish Premier League for alleged pro-IRA chants in a match against Hibernian.

Moves to bring resolution to the problem suffered a blow when the Celtic Supporters Trust and the Celtic Supporters Association refused to meet Corrigan. A CST statement read: "On Tuesday of this week we were advised that ACC Corrigan wished to have a meeting with all the supporters' organisations."
