Rangers ban racist fans who abused Celtic star Kyogo Furuhashi and their ENTIRE supporters’ bus from receiving ticketsAugust 23, 2021
RANGERS have banned the fans involved in alleged racist chants towards Celtic star Kyogo Furuhashi.
The Ibrox club have completed an investigation into the sickening footage that emerged online yesterday.
And they have also blocked the ENTIRE supporters' bus from receiving tickets for future matches.
A club statement read: "Rangers can confirm that an investigation is now complete in regard to a video circulating on social media yesterday.
"The individuals involved have been identified and will be banned indefinitely from all Rangers games.
"Furthermore, the RSC of which they were members and travelled with to the game, have been banned from receiving tickets for future fixtures."
The news comes as Kyogo broke his silence over the sickening abuse earlier this afternoon.
The Light Blues yesterday launched a probe after yobs were filmed singing a bigoted song about Celtic's new Japanese star.
The footage, which has been shared widely online, has disgusted fans from both Glasgow clubs.
And Kyogo today sent out his appreciation from the outpouring of support he has received, saying simply on Instagram: "I'll never walk alone 🙏💚 #NoToRacism."
