Mikael Lustig Reveals He Apologised to Police Scotland After Stealing Policeman’s Hat During Rangers Win

Celtic defender Mikael Lustig has revealed he apologised to Police Scotland after stealing a policeman’s hat during an Old Firm win over Rangers back in 2018.

The Swedish right-back wrote himself into Hoops folklore when he cheekily nicked part of the unsuspecting copper’s uniform during his side’s romping 5-0 victory over the Gers in April of last year.

But whilst the stunt made himself a hero to Celtic supporters, it didn’t make him too popular in the corridors of power at Police Scotland’s HQ, and the man himself has now admitted he offered a personal apology afterwards.

Speaking whilst on international duty, Lustig revealed via the Sun: “The reaction was mostly positive but I was told the police in Scotland weren’t happy with me.

“I had to call them and apologise. After that everything went quiet.

“I enjoy having fun but clearly wearing a police hat was not something I planned before the match.”

The 32-year-old was chosen to start his country’s daunting Euro 2020 qualifier against Spain this evening inside Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, but it remains to be seen if he managed to nick any items of clothing from the local cops.

Do you think Lustig was correct to apologise for his behaviour?
