Tweets showing the moment a Celtic fan’s Irish tricolour was taken by a steward at Dens – and then an angry exchange afterwards – have been captured on camera.
The posts show a steward apparently reaching up and grabbing the flag as it is draped over an advertising hoarding above the tunnel as Dundee played hosts to Celtic at Dens Park.
A man is then seen jumping down apparently to retrieve it:
Anyone notice the steward take down the tri-colour and the boy jump straight down after it 😂😂😂🇮🇪 pic.twitter.com/IhQPQQAtVW

A second tweet shows an angry exchange involving stewards and the owner of the flag trying to get it back, as police officers look on:

Celtic won the match 1-0 with a goal deep into added time.
Dundee FC has been approached for comment.
