Footage on social media showed Rangers fans marching through the city centre attended by police on Sunday while chanting an anti-Irish song referring to the Famine.

Police Scotland Assistant Chief Constable Bernard Higgins said: “We did not facilitate this event and to say so is inaccurate.

Officers on patrol came across this group as it was making its way through Glasgow city centre.

Due to the numbers and to ensure public and officer safety, additional officers were called to assist and, at this point, individuals’ details were noted and the group dispersed.

A retrospective investigation into this anti-Irish Catholic singing has been launched.”

Scottish Greens co-leader Patrick Harvie also condemned the scenes.

 

Glasgow Labour MSP Pam Duncan-Glancy tweeted….

Pressure group Call It Out, which campaigns against anti-Catholic bigotry and anti-Irish racism in Scotland, called on the Scottish government and Glasgow City Council to take action and to “start by recognising our community”.
