Copenhagen star Michael Santos pushes a police officer and sends him into the ground during crazy celebrations at Parkhead while beating Celtic from Europa League
Copenhagen striker Michael Santos staggeredly flew a police officer during wild parties after their late winning goal at Celtic.
Santos, who had opened the scoring in Celtic Park on Thursday-evening, sprinted to participate in the traveling supporters’ celebrations after Pep Biel led the Danish side in the 84th minute.
A large group of police officers were stationed in front of the fans, and tried to keep the players away from the crowd before Santos immediately invaded one and let him fly to the ground.

The Copenhagen players were noticeably angry with the decision of the police and were seen arguing with officers in chaotic scenes.
After Biel had scored to restore the visitors’ lead, the Spaniard went straight to the ecstatic fans of Copenhagen.
A police officer was then seen in TV footage that grabbed Biel from behind and turned the player around trying to calm him down.
When the couple subsequently protested against each other, another buyer was sent who tumbled by Santos, who had flown to his sprint to celebrate with his teammates.
In videos posted online, Santos seemed to be caught by the policeman he had persuaded after he got back on his feet.

Another officer seemed to be helping him before Santos and Biel were led away from their fans.
Clearly unhappy, the Uruguayan striker Santos turned around and waved his finger disapprovingly at the police.
It is not yet clear whether action will be taken after the incident.
Odsonne Edouard leveled the score for Celtic with a cheeky Paneka penalty just minutes before Biel restored the visitors’ lead.
