Mon 17 May 2021 | 18:55

Rangers club has defended its staff against the sectarian language usage accusation.

Rangers

club insists that there has been no criminal act in their staff and players’ celebration over the weekend as Scotland Police continues the investigations about the video that was viewed many times with the players using sectarian language in it.

The club claims that the video is probably fake and has questioned the viability of the footage that may cause them many problems.

"It is evident that this video was shared with an adjoining narrative which attempts to discredit our players and the reputation of Rangers Football Club,"

a statement read.

"This highlights the dangers of 'trial by social media'.

"It is deeply concerning that this video has been taken as genuine and has been shared widely including by some political representatives who should be mindful of their influence and legal processes.

"Our squad is richly diverse. Sectarianism is unacceptable and has no place in our club which is underlined by our Everyone Anyone campaign. We are confident that no criminality took place, we have sought legal advice and look forward to cooperating with Police Scotland."

Police have published an announcement confirming that they are aware of the situation and investigating the incident.

Police Scotland confirmed:

"We are aware of a video circulating on social media apparently showing Rangers players using sectarian language while celebrating on Saturday.

"We are assessing its contents and will liaise with the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service as part of our enquiries."
