FORMER Celtic boss Gordon Strachan believes police warnings should be heeded regarding post-split Premiership fixtures.

The ex-Scotland international gaffer insists public safety and the nation’s football image are of paramount importance.

The Hoops are three points away from a seventh successive title and are due to face Sevco Rangers at Parkhead before the end of the campaign.

Strachan said: “You have to take advice from them [the police]if they think it’s going to be damaging for Scotland as a whole to show something like that.

“Even last week when you see Manchester City and Liverpool [Champions League tie where the visitors’ team bus was attacked by before the game at Anfield].

“It wasn’t good for Liverpool, it wasn’t good for the British or English game.”

The SPFL is due to announce the post-split fixtures this week.
