We all thought we were heading in the right direction. After Glen Kamara, the country was united in their condemnation of racism as football fans across the length and breadth of not only Scotland, but the whole of Britain and around the world declared enough was enough.
The Rangers International Football Club enjoyed unadulterated and unilateral support for their player and it seems almost incredible now that a mere six months after Kamara was racially abused by Andre Kudela, we are talking about this issue again.
What is even more incredible is it is Rangers fans that are again embroiled in a racism row that, you would think, would have been eradicated from their own support after what happened to their own player.
Sadly, it was not to be and a report by Celtic site Born Celtic, only highlighted how much of an issue racism and ignorance is amongst an element of the fans from the Ibrox club.
Former Celtic defender Ramon Vega, took to Twitter to post an extremely angry message of support for Kyogo Furuhashi after members of a Rangers supporters bus were filmed racially abusing the Celtic star.
Vega was not holding back his anger when he tweeted, “This is absolutely outrages and Unacceptable behaviour there is no doubt about IF ! Don’t TOUCH KYOGO EVER AGAIN IS NOT ONLY A TOP STRIKER FOR CELTIC BUT MORE IMPORTANT A HUMAN BEING THAT LOVES FOOTBALL AND CLEARY ENJOYS GLASGOW
AT THE MOMENT. This guys need to banned!”
Celtic fans also took to Twitter as #WeStandWithKyogo was trending with messages from not just Celtic fans, but all over the world in support for the Japanese international.
