Celtic fan gets two year match ban for abuse

Brodrick assaulted a police officer at Pittodrie Stadium

A FOOTBALL fan has been fined and banned from attending matches after making racist remarks at a game.

Gerard Francis Brodrick, 23, of Glasgow was fined £2300 and given a two-year Football Banning Order atAberdeen Sheriff Court on Monday.

Celtic-fan Brodrick had made racist remarks at a game between Aberdeen and Celtic at Pittodrie Stadium in February this year.

He also resisted arrest and assaulted a police officer.

Chief Superintendent Adrian Watson said: “Grampian Police is committed to stamping out  racism and all other forms of unacceptable behaviour.

“We work closely with Aberdeen Football Club , the fans and the football authorities  to identify those responsible for acting in an unacceptable manner and have made significant inroads into making the match day experience at Pittodrie one of the safest in the country.

“It is unfortunate that  the very few  continue to act in this way and this should serve as a warning that Grampian Police will not tolerate  this type behaviour of behaviour in any shape or form.”
