Hundreds of Rangers fans have lashed out at Michael Stewart for chanting “racist bile” in Glasgow City Center today.
There was a large group of Gers supporters. Filmed mocking the Irish famine. As they marched near Central Station before the derby in Abrox, where the home side won 1-0.
They can be heard chanting erratic sectarian slogans on Argyle Street.
Dozens were seen chanting “famine song” before Abrox’s clash with rival Celtic.
Unholy song refers to the massive starvation of the 19th century that killed more than one million people in Ireland.
The lyrics urge Celtic fans to “go home” to Ireland and say they have brought “trouble and shame” to Scotland.
In the clip, Gers fans can be heard singing: “They came from Ireland, brought us nothing but trouble and embarrassment.
“Well the famine is over, why don’t they go home?”
And Sun Sport. Columnist Stewart used social media to insult those involved.
The Scottish Footy Pundit also strongly questioned why the incident was widely accepted, as he urged people to call the behavior “instead of being swept away under the carpet”.
He wrote on Twitter: “A group of boys on the bus chants racist slogans and is condemned.
“A large group of people are passing through the city with the slogan of racism and it seems that the police are with them and nothing has been done.
“It simply came to our notice then.
“These are not isolated incidents. They happen very often and are ignored, run under the carpet and are effectively accepted.
“Institutions, clubs and individuals all need to work harder in this country. That should not be acceptable.”

The slogan was blown out of proportion by the anti-sectarian charity Neil as it condemned the footy audience.
Director Dave Scott said: “There’s no celebration of football or identity, just ugly, bigoted hatred.

This kind of rubbish should no longer be welcomed in the 21st century because another prayer is abusing Gan Kumara or Morons who are doing the same with Kyogo Farhoshi.
“It’s gutter language.”
