Celtic bosses slam ‘sick­en­ing chants’ amid Old Firm row

Evening Times - - NEWS -

CELTIC have claimed their fans were tar­geted with “sick­en­ing chants” amid claims Rangers’ Al­fredo More­los was sub­jected to racist abuse dur­ing Sun­day’s Old Firm.

The Ibrox side said on Mon­day the Colom­bian was tar­geted af­ter be­ing sent off by ref­eree Kevin Clancy in the clos­ing stages of their 2-1 vic­tory.

Police are in­ves­ti­gat­ing those claims.

But Hoops chiefs have since claimed their sup­port were tar­geted with mis­siles be­ing thrown by the 800-strong Gers sup­port, in ad­di­tion to “other un­savoury in­ci­dents”.

They added: “How­ever, as we al­ways do, Celtic will deal with these and all other in­ci­dents re­spon­si­bly and in a dig­ni­fied and pro­fes­sional man­ner and in a way which pro­tects the greater good of the game.”
