A football fan has died after falling down a stairwell during last night’s Euro 2016 qualifier at Celtic Park between Scotland and Ireland.
20-year-old Nathan McSeveney was rushed to Glasgow Royal Infirmary after the incident near Exit 33 of the stadium, the home of Celtic Football Club.
A police spokesman said: “There are no suspicious circumstances. A report will be prepared for the procurator fiscal.”
Celtic also released a statement, which read: “Everyone at Celtic Football Club is deeply saddened to learn of the death of a young supporter following last night’s match between Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.
“This was a terrible, tragic incident and our sincere thoughts and prayers are with the young man’s family at this time.”

A Shaun Maloney strike in the second half was enough to give Gordan Strachan’s Scotland team a 1-0 victory over Ireland in front of 55,000 supporters.
