Old Firm form six-point plan

Celtic and Rangers have agreed to a six-point plan to tackle trouble in Old Firm clashes between the two teams.

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond hosted a meeting in Edinburgh where last week's match was debated as all parties looked to resolve the problems of sectarianism and bad behaviour which surround the fixture.

Celtic and Rangers will meet for the sixth time this season in the Co-operative Insurance Cup final at Hampden Park on March 20, and they will go head-to-head for the seventh time this campaign when they complete their final derby fixture in the SPL.

Celtic and Rangers issued statements to confirm they had reached agreement on a six-point plan. The statement outlined the following recommendations:

"• The creation of a stand-alone pan-Scotland police football intelligence unit as part of the ongoing review of police forces in Scotland.

• Greater enforcement of existing legislation to deal with sectarianism and drink related offences.

• The establishment of a task force comprising senior police officers, Government representatives and club security personnel to deliver more consistency in policing of football matches across Scotland.

• A detailed academic study into the extent of the linkage of football to violent crime committed domestically and in the community.

• Celtic and Rangers will commit to playing an enhanced role in a partnership approach to encourage responsible drinking.

• A re-enforced code of conduct for players and officials."
