Celtic verbally abused at Glasgow Airport as Brendan Rodgers orders review of travel arrangements
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has said he will review travel arrangements after his team appeared to be verbally abused at Glasgow Airport ahead of the Champions League third qualifier against Rosenborg.
Striker Leigh Griffiths, available after a calf injury kept him out of the goalless draw at Parkhead last week, appeared to react to a comment made from a holidaymaker in the check-in queue next to where the Hoops squad picked up their boarding passes for the trip to Norway.
The person appeared to shout an obscenity and Griffiths was heard to say, “you’re team’s deid (dead) mate, beat it.”

There were also suggestions the Scotland forward was then accosted as he made his way to the security gates on the next level.
Speaking at Celtic’s hotel in Trondheim, Rodgers said: “I don’t want to comment on it. I haven’t seen it or heard about it, that’s the first thing.
“The second thing, the club knows my feeling on our travel and the organisation with that.
“That is something internal for us and obviously with the help of Glasgow airport that we can get something a bit more suitable.
“Incident or no incident, it is something we can look at that allows us to travel safely, which is the most important thing.
