Andrew Dickson has accused Celtic of hosting the most disgusting and sustained racism that he has ever heard in Scotland.

Dicko is a former reporter for Rangers Media, in 2012 he TUPE’d over his employment contract to the new club created by Charles Green.

It’s unclear whether Dickson was actually working at Celtic Park on Sunday but in typical fashion he opted to share his opinions on Twitter without a shred of evidence. His version of events was very similar to that portrayed by Peter Smith of ITN.

In four previous appearances at Celtic Park there has been no reports of racist abuse of Alfredo Morelos but something appears to have changed on Sunday.

With his 7th red card in 17 months, his second in a fortnight, the transfer value of the former HJK Helsinki starlet has dropped like a stone. Adding to the issue was the gesture of drawing a finger across his throat as he left the pitch.

In normal circumstances the red card and gesture would be newsworthy but in Scotland other forces are at work with a different line required in an attempt to put a gloss on bad news for a club facing a £10m shortfall for the season. Plus, a pay-out amounting to many millions of pounds next month to Sports Direct.

It seems that Dickson missed out on the racist abuse that resulted in part of Ibrox being closed for two matches by UEFA earlier this season, the SFA and SPFL have never charged the company on that score.
