Rangers have recognized supporters who racially abused Celtic’s Japanese striker Kyogo Furuhashi and have indefinitely banned them from all of the Scottish Premiership membership’s video games.
In a video that appeared on Sunday, a gaggle of followers sporting Rangers shirts and travelling in a bus had been seen singing racist songs concentrating on Furuhashi and making offensive eye gestures.
The video was reportedly taken when the supporters had been in Dingwall for Rangers’ 4-2 Premiership win at Ross County.
“Rangers can verify that an investigation is now full in regard to a video circulating on social media yesterday,” a Rangers assertion stated.
“The people concerned have been recognized and shall be banned indefinitely from all Rangers video games.
“Moreover, the RSC (Rangers Supporters Membership) of which they had been members and travelled with to the sport, have been banned from receiving tickets for future fixtures.”
Earlier on Sunday, Celtic condemned the abuse, terming it “sickening and pathetic”.
“Sadly, quite a few Celtic gamers in recent times have suffered related racist abuse,” a Celtic assertion stated.
“As a membership open to all, we stand firmly towards racism in all its varieties and we are going to give Kyogo our full help.
“All stakeholders should work collectively in tackling all types of bigotry.”
Rangers and fierce rival Celtic – coached by Ange Postecoglou – meet one another within the SPL at Ibrox on Sunday.
