Following reports that Aberdeen FC player, Shay Logan, had experienced racist comments after he was sent off in the aftermath of Aberdeen’s game at Parkhead on the final day of the football season and subsequent press coverage, Show Racism the Red Card release the following statement.

“We fully support Shay Logan and will be asking the SPFL to investigate any claims of racism reported to the league.

“There is NO excuse for racism and we are sure the vast majority of football fans would agree it is something no player should experience.

"Show Racism the Red Card would offer support to anyone who may have experienced racist abuse. There is no place for it in Scottish Society or Scottish Football. All allegations of racism should be fully investigated by the relevant authorities and if proven, action should be taken.

“Celtic FC is a long-term supporter of the SRtRC campaign, helping educate young people from schools in the area about racism and discrimination and we look forward to continuing this work over the 2018/19 season.

"Any complaints of racism made to Celtic Football Club will be fully investigated."
