Fireworks were set off outside Celtic Park during the two minute silence to pay respect for Prince Phillip ahead of the Celtic vs Livingston game on Saturday afternoon.

Prince Phillip passed away on Friday and the two teams were paying their respects with 120 seconds of silence ahead of their match.

While the people on the pitch observed it immaculately, a serious of loud bangs were heard during the planned silence from outside the stadium.

A number of the players looked up as the fireworks went off as the commentator noted: ‘I think that was some fireworks going off outside Celtic Park.

‘Not sure what that was but some pretty loud bangs anyway.’

Celtic went on to win the match 6-0, but the pre-match scenes were as notable as the sizeable win for the Hoops.

Celtic interim manager John Kennedy said of the match: ‘Once we found our groove we were always going to carry a threat. I’m just focusing on the team and how we can improve week on week. I think we’re seeing that in the performances now.

‘Confidence is huge in football and the players have had a tough time this year. We’ve tried to rebuild that.’

The Bhoys now prepare to take on Rangers in the final of the Scottish FA Cup next weekend as they look for a measure of revenge for losing the Premiership title this season.
