Three Rangers supporters have been charged by Police Scotland following racially aggravated offences ahead of Sunday’s victory over Celtic at Ibrox.
A police investigation was launched after video circulated online of a group chanting sectarian abuse in Glasgow.
Rangers have been working with the police to identify any season ticket holders following the incident, having also condemned all forms of racism, sectarianism and discrimination.
Chief superintendent Mark Sutherland, divisional commander for Greater Glasgow Police Division, said: “We have made the first of what I expect to be numerous arrests following the disgraceful racial conduct shown by a minority of Rangers supporters who were making their way to Ibrox stadium on Sunday, 29 August.
“Three men, aged 24, 21 and 19 years old, were arrested and charged last night, Wednesday, 1 September, in connection with racially aggravated offences towards a member of the public and for the singing of racist material.
“This racist conduct will not be tolerated and our investigations are continuing. We will continue to work with Rangers FC to identify and take appropriate action against those responsible
