Scottish FA charge John Guidetti over ‘offensive’ comment


Celtic striker John Guidetti has been issued with a notice of complaint by the Scottish FA for making an ‘offensive’ comment during an interview with a Dutch TV crew.

The on loan Manchester City striker had repeated a chant during filming that was dedicated to him by Celtic supporters. The 22-year-old Swedish striker sang: “Oh John Guidetti, puts the ball in the net-y, he’s a Super Swede and the huns are deid, walking in Guidetti wonderland.”

Celtic issued a statement on Monday afternoon via the official club website, they said: “We are very surprised and disappointed that this has even found its way to an SFA judicial panel. John Guidetti will be defending this charge.”

A disciplinary hearing is set for Thursday April 9th at Hampden Park.
