Hair-Raising Footage Shows Scott Sinclair Approach Celtic Ultras To Receive Anti-Racism Shirt

Having experienced horrendous racial abuse at the hands of an utter moron at Ibrox during last weekend's Old Firm derby, and further bilious insults online, Scott Sinclair was today serenaded with support by Celtic fans - and in particular the club's 'Green Brigade' faction.

An inspired signing by Brendan Rodgers, the 28-year-old English winger was recently named Celtic's Player of the Year, but was initially rested for today's 4-1 victory over St. Johnstone at Parkhead.

Following the game, Sinclair consulted with manager Brendan Rodgers and young left-back Kieran Tierney, and following a brief discussion approached the Green Brigade to rapturous roars and a swift chorus of Celtic fans' Scott Sinclair chant.

The GB ultras presented Sinclair with a black t-shirt with the words 'Love Celtic, Hate Racism' written across the chest. Sinclair thanked the fans and proudly held the t-shirt aloft.

28-year-old Paul Kenny, the Rangers fan who made monkey gestures following Sinclair's penalty at Ibrox, has since pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

Prior to kickoff in Glasgow, Celtic fans unfurled a banner which read, 'Anti-Racism Is Beautiful, Magical' - words which incorporate their famed Sinclair chant.
