FANS of Celtic and Legia Warsaw were today warned by police not to violate Edinburgh byelaws on drinking alcohol in public ahead of tonight’s clash between the teams at Murrayfield Stadium.

Police in the Capital used their Twitter account to remind fans of the ban, including a link with details of the byelaw.

Celtic will have to overhaul a 4-1 deficit from the away leg to make it through the Champions League qualifier.

Match Commander Bryan Rodgers, from Police Scotland, said: “The Celtic versus Legia Warsaw Champions League qualifying match at Murrayfield is likely to attract tens of thousands of supporters.

“Police Scotland has been working very closely with our partners to keep fans safe and to minimise disruption around the Murrayfield area and, indeed, across Edinburgh.

“Members of the public travelling to the fixture are asked not to bring any flares or fireworks and are reminded that a city bylaw is in place which prohibits the consumption of alcohol outdoors.”
