RANGERS have vowed to work with the police to identify any fans that participated in a sectarian march through Glasgow city centre.

A video on social media showed a large group being escorted by police while chanting an anti-Irish song referencing the famine on the day of their side's 1-0 win over Celtic.

The statement, released on the club's website on Monday night, reads: "Following an incident on Sunday, we repeat that Rangers FC condemns all forms of racism, sectarianism and discrimination.

"We are working with the police to identify any season ticket holders.

"As a club, we are proud of our Everyone Anyone campaign, led through the Rangers Charity Foundation, our work with a wide range of stakeholders and our on-going dialogue with the Scottish Government.

"Discrimination of all forms is a societal issue within Scotland.

"Those with influence within Scottish discourse should put their energy into eradicating this very serious issue across all sections of Scottish society who suffer sectarianism, discrimination and racism of any form."

Police have previously announced they expect to make multiple arrests following the incident.

Assistant Chief Constable Bernard Higgins said officers “did not facilitate this event and to say so is inaccurate”.

“Officers on patrol came across this group as they were making their way through Glasgow City Centre,” he said in a statement. “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.”

An investigation into anti-Irish Catholic singing has now been launched, with a number of lines of enquiry being followed up, he said. Officers will be reviewing CCTV footage and expect a “number of arrests to be made”.

Higgins went on: “This type of anti-Irish Catholic behaviour is wholly unacceptable. Our enquiries are ongoing to identify those who were involved and we will take the appropriate action against them. We would ask anyone who has any information that could assist our investigation to contact us.

“However, the challenges of the sectarianism still evident in some parts of Scotland are a much broader societal problem and whilst policing will have a role to play in addressing the symptoms, it’s causes are a problem which require a more effective, joined-up, civic response.”
