Claims of "ongoing campaign" against them

25 March ~ A Celtic supporters' group has criticised the actions of police after their operation to control a march of fans. The Green Brigade, Celtic's "ultra" group, were planning to walk peacefully from Glasgow's Gallowgate area to Celtic Park in support of some members who had been banned. Over 200 officers, including dog teams, mounted units and a helicopter, were used to control the fans but were described as "heavy handed", "thuggish" and "out of control" by witnesses. Fans claim it is part of an ongoing campaign of harassment and intimidation against them, as Al Jazeera reports.
