In the tweet, Sinclair said: “Absolutely disgusted yet again, how can a person use a child to promote racism, it’s beyond me.”
It came after an image was circulated on Twitter of a child standing in front of a mural of monkeys accompanied by the caption: “Just bumped into Scott Sinclair at Edinburgh zoo”.
The latest racist outcry comes after Paul Kenny, 28, appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court yesterday where he admitted the offence contrary to the Offensive Behaviour at Football Act.
He admitted engaging in behaviour that is likely or would be likely to incite public disorder in that he did “shout and make racial gestures”.
Kenny, from Girvan , South Ayrshire made ‘monkey’ gestures at the ground following Sinclair’s successful penalty-kick to open the floodgates for the champions in a one-sided encounter.
