All the talk this week has been about racism in football. What are our thoughts on this?

Personally, apart from the odd drunk at games, I don't see it anymore. I've even heard our own fans give one idiot pelters for trying to make a joke of it.

Don't get me wrong, it appears to be getting worse across European football which is disgusting in this day and age but I think it's pretty much gone in Scottish football.

I remember the days of Mark Walters and Paul Elliot. It wasn't a nice time for Scottish football. I agree though, thankfully it looks like we've turned the corner and ran right down the street.

Serious post here cos I'm mixed race. Can't speak to the world or even europe as not that bothered but can honestly say never really seen it at Cappielow except stupid comments from eejits. Wee Fred's going away pressy was fantastic.

Of course it exists and there are plenty of examples being highlighted in the media day and daily but here in the West of Scotland it's minimal. Who needs racism when Proddy/Catholic bigotry is still rife? thumbs down

I don't think racism or xenophobia can be eradicated by legislation or even education. It's an inherent part of being human to suspect/fear/protect yourself against anything that isn't 'home grown', and you'll always get racism in some form among football fans.

Turning to the goldfish bowl that's Greenock Morton it's absolutely minimal in my experience.

Not sure exactly what your point is. I certainly don't think racism is a big issue in Scottish football.

It's discrimination - not racism.

i see what you're driving at but that's just religious bigotry and not every Irish person is a RC!

It is - aye - but the term 'fenian' is mainly used for a Roman Catholic - not an Irishman - so it's a religious issue and not a racist one.

That's daft. Irish doesn't equal RC and RC doesn't equal Irish except in the West of Scotland and other 'dark ages' enclaves.

O.F. bigotry isn't racism, and while on the point, a large proportion of Celtic and Rangers folk are NOT bigots.

Maybe this isn't relevant but half the England squad are black players.

They didn't even know the new turnstyles didn't work for two years. The chances they know what's said on the terracing are the square root of fuck all.

Also, this is the same BoD who DID tolerate fans being hit by bottles at Ibrox a few years ago.
