SCOTTISH Green Party co-leader Patrick Harvie has called for the Rangers fans who were filmed singing “anti-Irish racist songs” to face charges.

Earlier today Gers fans were condemned for spouting “bigoted hatred” on the streets of Glasgow ahead of the Old Firm derby.

Supporters were filmed singing about the Irish famine as they marched through the city centre.

Referring to the 19th-century catastrophe which left more than one million people dead, the song tells Irish people to “go home” and claims they have brought “trouble and shame” to Scotland.

Dozens of fans, who were being escorted by Police Scotland officers, were caught on camera singing the sectarian song ahead of the noon kick-off.

Harvie said: “The images of a mob singing anti-Irish racist songs, as they marched through Glasgow escorted by police, ought to be shocking but are shamefully all too familiar.

“At the very least, we need an assurance that every identifiable person in that crowd will face charges.”

Rangers won today’s game against Celtic 1-0 after Swedish defender Filip Helander headed in the winner.

The fans were previously rebuked by anti-sectarianism charity Nil by Mouth.

Charity director David Scott told the Scottish Sun: “There is no celebration of football or identity here just ugly, bigoted hatred.

“This sort of garbage should be no more welcome in the 21st century as another prayer racially abusing Glen Kamara or morons on a supporters bus doing the same to Kyogo Furuhashi.

“It’s the language of the sewer.”
