Show Racism the Red Card is delighted to be heading back to Rangers FC on Tuesday 16th May for the second time this year. Rangers FC will host an event for pupils from Ibrox Primary and Craigton Primary. The club have been very proactive this season in supporting the campaign with Rangers Ambassador Mark Hateley attending our launch for our annual Fortnight of Action at the Palace of Arts sports complex. Mark also attended the Rangers FC education Club Event earlier in 2017 and spoke to young people about his experience of racism, giving good advice on how to safely challenge racism and how important anti-racism education is.

Speaking at the event Mark Hateley said “You can never stop, it is all about going forward and you have to keep going forward. It is about educating the kids and they can educate their parents and then their children in years to come.

“We just keep spreading the word and being positive. We are maybe two or three generations away but we can wipe it out.”

Rangers Legend John ‘Bomber’ Brown also attended our annual creative competition awards ceremony at Hamdpen Park in March to present young people with prizes.

Earlier this season Mark Hateley was awarded a Show Racism the Red Card Hall of Fame for the commitment he as shown to the campaign in the 15 years it has been running in Scotland.  

Rangers FC also invited the Show Racism the Red Card teamto do a poster distribution in their family stand on Saturday 19th November.

The Show Racism the Red Card team would like to thank Rangers Football Club for commitment to anti-racism education and helping to promote an anti-racism message.
