Celtic fan John Hatton, from Belfast, was one of seven arrests made by Police Scotland at the match.

He was taken into custody, along with three other men who were accused of assault, breach of the peace and violating the offensive behaviour at football act 2012.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday, 21-year-old Hatton admitted assaulting Mbappe by attempting to kick him and also pleaded guilty to behaviour likely to incite public disorder by approaching the player.

He was granted bail and sentence was deferred until 11 October for background reports.

“I think their reaction said it all,” said Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers after the match. “It was disappointing at any ground, at any club, a supporter getting on the pitch like that.

“It was bitterly disappointing and I am sure the club will deal with whoever that supporter was. It shouldn’t be anything that we should see.

“I think the stewards dealt with it at the time and I am sure the club will deal with it.”
