A fire at the home of Celtic chief Peter Lawwell in the early hours of Wednesday morning is being treated as deliberate by police.
CCTV captured a man pouring accelerant on vehicles in the driveway of the property before the blaze spread to Lawwell’s home.
The family were said to have been left shaken but uninjured by the incident, which saw eight fire appliances sent to tackle the fire.
Police Scotland have launched a probe into the incident and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
One man is wanted in connection with the incident after CCTV enquiries were carried out by officers.
The male suspect is described as around 5 ft 10 ins and of slim build. He was wearing black joggers, a black hooded jumper with the hood up, black trainers and a face mask.
A silver/grey hatchback car was also seen near to the house at the time of the fire.
Detective Inspector Susie Cairns said: “This was a completely reckless act which destroyed three cars and caused significant damage to the property’s garage. The consequences could have been so much worse but thankfully nobody was injured during this incident.
“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time that saw a man or car matching this description or saw any unusual activity to please come forward.
“If you have personal CCTV or a dashcam, please check back and see if there is any footage that could assist our investigation.
“No matter how small or insignificant you think it may be, please get in touch.”
A Celtic statement read: “We can confirm that significant damage has been caused to Peter Lawwell’s house and vehicles there, following an explosion and fire early this morning, forcing the family to leave the property.
“Clearly, Peter’s family are extremely shaken and shocked by these terrible events, but thankfully all are safe.
“We understand that Police Scotland are currently undertaking a criminal investigation.
“Peter and his family will of course receive the full support and care of everyone at the Club.”
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said no casualties were reported as a result of the fire.
One local who lives nearby told The Courier that the road had been cordoned off throughout the night, with a significant emergency service presence.
