Following confirmation that Islam Feruz will move to Chelsea from Celtic, Somali born Islam has been subjected to racist abuse.
Racism and sectarianism is unacceptable in all aspects of society, including football, and Show Racism the Red Card will continue to campaign and educate against such behaviour. We work proactively with young people and adults to promote our anti-racism / anti-sectarianism message and highlight the dangers of racism / sectarianism.
Bill Butler, Show Racism the Red Card Scotland said:
"Football can excite great passion but there should be no place for the type of abusive, racist comments which Somali born Islam Feruz is receiving on his facebook page from some disgruntled fans, such comments are totally unacceptable and do no credit to those who make them. Show Racism the Red Card Scotland condemns these comments and calls for an end to them".
