ArabTrust report Rangers fans for Sectarian Chanting


The Arab Trust have issued a statement on their official website that they have reported Rangers fans for sectarian chanting at Tannadice in last night’s game between Dundee United and the Ibrox club, which United lost 4-0, and saw three of their players sent off.

The statement read, “Members of ArabTRUST have reported that illegal sectarian chants were sung by ‘fans’ of Glasgow Rangers at Tannadice Park last night.”

“These chants were heard throughout the stadium and ArabTRUST condemns these so-called supporters who bring down their football club and tarnish the reputation of our national sport. ArabTRUST has accordingly reported the matter to the relevant authorities.”

According to the Trust, the Rangers fans sang ‘many deplorable chants’ and selectively pinpointed ONE sectarian chant, which they stated ‘could be heard in the stadium and on BBC Radio Scotland:

“We are Rangers, Super Rangers, No one likes us, We don’t care, We hate Celtic, F****n b******s, We will chase them anywhere.”

The statement added, “We now challenge both the SFA and UEFA to take action. These chants have also been reported to Tayside Police and we await the outcome. We are fully aware that many Glasgow Rangers supporters share our concerns. It is time that both sectarianism and bigotry are ended in Scottish football, and Scottish society as a whole. We invite all supporters’ trusts to join together so that we may eradicate such vile prejudices.”
