Celtic supporters are outraged by the actions of a fan who made monkey gestures at Ranger's star El Hadji Diouf during last week's Old Firm game.
The man ran down a stairway from his seat to taunt Diouf by the pitch and made monkey noises at the Senegalese winger as he was preparing to take a corner kick.
Shocked Celtic fan Paul McAteer said "I heard him making the monkey sound and saw him arc his arms like a monkey. Nobody could believe this guy. He was shouted at to get lost and ran back to his seat. We were disgusted."
Show Racism the Red Card Chief Executive, Ged Grebby, said: "Show Racism the Red Card has a proud record of working in conjunction with Celtic Football Club from 1997 to date. Both the club and ourselves have a long-term aim to eradiacte racism from both within football and society. Thankfully incidents like this are now in a minority and both supporters, players, managers and football clubs are doing all they can to isolate the few racist thugs. Show Racism the Red Card will fully support both Strathclyde Police and Celtic FC in taking action against this fan for his moronic behaviour.
"Show Racism the Red Card will be at Celtic Park for an anti-racist educational event on 14th March and will continue our fight against racism in Scotland."
Strathclyde Police said, "Inappropriate behaviour of a racist or sectarian nature will not be tolerated."
Celtic added: "We will take the strongest appropriate action."
