Hundreds of people staged an anti-racism rally in Glasgow city centre despite appeals to stay away due to the lockdown restrictions.
Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf, the city council and Police Scotland had called on the public not to gather for the Say No To Racism demonstration.
There was a heavy police presence in the square following violent scenes from a far-right group on Wednesday.
Officers later confirmed one man was arrested in the nearby Gallowgate area.
A police spokesman said the 42-year-old allegedly obstructed officers.
A second man, aged 62, was arrested in Edinburgh for threatening and abusive behaviour.
That arrest is believed to be in connection with a separate protest in the capital.
At about midday a group of protesters from the Green Brigade – a group of ultras who follow Celtic football club – were hemmed in by police in the centre of Glasgow’s George Square.
Anti-racism activists outside the cordon chanted: “Let them go.”
Ch Supt Alan Murray, said: “We identified a group as football risk supporters, who we believed posed a threat to public safety.
“We spoke with this group and, at their request, escorted them to the Gallowgate area of the city where they dispersed.”
Loyalists and members of a far-right group announced online on Friday night that they planned to head to the square to “protect statues”.
A small group gathered at the war memorial during the rally as lines of riot police separated the two.
More than 500 people attended the rally, with stewards asking them to stick to social distancing guidelines by following markings on the square.
Supporters include Stand Up To Racism, Glasgow Campaign to Welcome Refugees, Positive Action in Housing, Afghan Human Rights Foundation and unions. Read more
