Yesterday morning I wrote and article on the experience of a lady at Ibrox, who alleges when she tried to call out racist and sectarian chants at Ibrox she was met with vitriol and abuse from male supporters that she felt the need to leave the stadium.
Today, I can report on a second case of alleged racist chants again at Ibrox in the same match (Hearts) where prominent sports vlogger, Qasim Sheikh, said he heard vile sectarian signing for the full 90 minutes and abuse aimed at the linesman for making an honest mistake.

And it didn’t take long for the usual replies and excuses to come marching in:
Unfortunately you’d have been sitting next to Celtic fans posing as Rangers fans. Happens every game.

And then the accusations of lying come to him:
Another fake story if this was true why not highlight it on Saturday why wait 5 days or did it take you that long to make the wee story up

Isn’t it remarkable? They never mention Rangers before and then seem to be soooo unlucky where they are seated and they never ever make a complaint to the club to highlight where they were seated. So many coincidences. It’s almost like ……— heretosee (@thefamousR_F_C) October 21, 2021
