Hearts are keeping strangely quiet after two of their racist fans were arrested at Tynecastle yesterday.

Ann Budge has had plenty to say in the past about behaviour inside her club’s stadium but there isn’t a single mention of the incident on the club website.

Video footage has emerged that shows around 20 Hearts fans shouting racist abuse at Motherwell substitute Christian Mbulu.

With the incident taking place in daylight two Hearts supporters have been identified and arrested.

According to the BBC website:

Hearts told BBC Scotland they are “aware” of the incident and are “cooperating fully” with the police.

The Main Stand at Tynecastle was opened a year ago and is mostly occupied by season ticket holders, others using the stand have to provide identity before they can purchase a ticket.

The SPFL has never taken action or commented on racist abuse by a member club although it does take part in the annual box ticking exercise by Show Racism the Red Card (Scotland).
