Celtic say they are “all in” on Show Racism the Red Card’s Month of Action.

The club tweeted on Tuesday lunchtime, saying “We’re all in” alongside a graphic which read the following:

“We are supporting Show Racism the Red Card’s Month of Action.

“Players and staff are playing our part to call for change. You can play your part by sharing our infographics far and wide throughout this month. Education is the key.

“Racism has no place in Scottish football or society. We’re all in.”

This is an important stance for Celtic to take, at a time when the issue of racism is getting more attention than ever.

Celtic players will lead “matchday action”

Show Racism the Red Card give more information about the “Month of Action” on their website.

The organisation are celebrating 25 years in 2021, and it will be interesting to see what role Celtic take this month.

There have already been several unfortunate cases of racism this season in Scotland.

Any action to fight against that should be welcomed by everybody.
