Celtic full back Cha Du-Ri has accused St.Johnstone fans of racism after several of the Perth club’s fans allegedly made monkey noises to fellow South Korean Ki Sung Yeung.
Despite Celtic comfortably winning 3-0 on Saturday, the defender was left fuming after he accused Saints fans of being racist on the same day that players and officials across the country kicked off another campaign to promote Show Racism the Red Card.
Cha said, “When Ki had the ball, two supporters jumped up and started making monkey noises. I have never seen anything like that. The incident is shameful and I feel angry about it. What makes it worse is we all held up cards and wore anti-racism T-shirts. There should be an investigation and they should be disciplined.”
St. Johnstone, to their credit, have come out and vowed to crack down on fans found guilty of racist chanting. A club statement said, “Should we identify any perpetrators, the most stringent action will be considered.”
