Michael Stewart blasts Rangers fans on Twitter after Celtic clash
Rangers finally got their season going with a huge 1-0 win over Celtic in the first Old Firm clash of the campaign.
The build-up was largely marred by Bears fans appearing to racially abuse Kyogo Furuhashi and after being banned.
It hasn’t stopped after the game either with large groups of fans walking through Glasgow chanting “anti-Irish” racist songs.
Michael Stewart has reacted to the incident on his personal Twitter account, labelling the scenes in Glasgow as “shameful.”
“A group of guys on a bus singing racist chants are condemned and action taken,” he wrote.
“A larger group walk through a city chanting racist bile and appear to be escorted by police and nothing is done. How is this allowed to happen. Shameful.”
When will it stop?
There are no excuses for incidents such as this.
After pulling off yet another huge Old Firm win, celebrations are to be expected, but there is always one group who take it way too far.
Why not sing normal chants? Celebrate the players, the management after their huge achievement through this COVID crisis.
Instead, all eyes and attention will be on this group who decided to ruin it, just as those on the bus chanting about Kyogo did.
Many of these people will go back to their families and resume normal life this week, with no repercussions for their decisions, maybe that is why they continue to do it.
Something needs to change, and quickly.
