Celtic fans sing minutes of applause in memory of the Queen at St Mirren

Celtic supporters sang a minute of applause in memory of the Queen before the Cinch Premiership game against St Mirren in Paisley.

Some Hoops fans chanted, “If you hate the royal family, clap your hands,” while a banner with the same phrase was seen at the other end.

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou had previously expressed the club’s wish for fans to be “respectful” at honours.

The Glasgow club became the subject of UEFA disciplinary proceedings after fans displayed a ‘F*** the Crown’ banner during Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Shakhtar Donetsk in Poland.

There were disruptions in honors at some Premiership games on Saturday.

A minute’s silence at Ibrox was interrupted by Dundee United supporters. Boos and derogatory chants could be heard from the corner of the stadium, which was home to several hundred United supporters before Rangers played God Save the King.

In a brief statement, United later explained that they “have briefed our supporters on the pre-match arrangements, expecting the minute’s silence to be observed”.

Similar reactions were seen ahead of Hibernian’s game against Aberdeen at Easter Road, where applause, boos and chants rang out for a minute.

The Scottish Football Association postponed all games last weekend following the death of the Queen, giving clubs a chance to decide whether and how to show respect when games resume.

In a joint statement with the Scottish Professional Football League on Monday, the SFA said: “This week, as a mark of respect and in line with the time of national mourning, home clubs may wish to hold a period of silence and/or play the national anthem just before kick-off, and players may wish to wear black armbands.”
