Rangers, racist chants against the Japanese Furuhashi: fans expelled forever

by admin

The Scottish club has indefinitely banned fans who were caught singing against the Celtic striker and no more tickets to those who participated in the away match

Indefinitely banned from all Glasgow Rangers matches: this is the decision taken by the Scottish club against those “fans” who were caught singing racist chants against Celtic’s Japanese striker Kyogo Furuhashi. The episode took place during the recent bus trip to Dingwall, where Steven Gerrard’s team was engaged in the match against Ross County (won 4 to 2) and was immortalized in a video, which then went viral. “Regarding the video circulated on social media on Sunday afternoon, we can confirm that we have closed the investigation – reads an official statement from the Glasgow club. All the people involved have been identified and will be banned indefinitely from Rangers matches ”.

Solidarity

In addition to disqualifying those responsible for the shameful chants against Furuhashi for life from Ibrox, the club also announced that it had also taken action against the group of fans who had organized the trip to the Highlands, which from now on will no longer receive tickets for to tie. As easily predictable, Celtic himself strongly condemned the incident, which certainly does not represent the best viaticum in view of next weekend’s match between the two Glasgow teams, which have always been rivals. “If the account of what happened is accurate, such disgusting and petty racist behavior towards Kyogo Furuhashi deserves absolute condemnation – reads the club’s social statement. Unfortunately, a number of Celtic players have been subjected to similar racist slurs in recent years. We are firmly opposed to any form of racism and will give Kyogo our full support ”.

The reaction

For his part, the Japanese international – who arrived in Scotland last month, coming from Vissel Kobe – wanted to take a stand on Twitter, thanking his club and his own fans for the support received. “I’ll never walk alone”, wrote Furuhashi in the post, to which he added the hashtag #NoToRacism.
