Sectarian abuse from visiting Aberdeen fans


Being away from it for two years probably sensitised me.  It’s been that long since I’ve been forced to listen to thousands of people chant sectarian abuse in unison.  Aberdeen fans pointed at us, singing that Jimmy Savile, the sex offender, was “One of your own”.  Savile was a Catholic, Aberdeen fans used this to tenuously link to Celtic fans, showing as little understanding of modern Celtic as they have of modern ethical standards.  It was an open and shut sectarian act.

The offence took place immediately below the police observation area and would have been caught on CCTV.  Every offender will be clearly visible.  This is unacceptable and it must be investigated by the police.  Any failure to act will only affirm the behaviour.  No one should be subject to criminality like this while attending a football game in Scotland.
