Quietly, and in full view of the Scottish media the Union Bears trashed a section of seating at McDiarmid Park on Saturday.

The Ibrox Ultras Group are well known to their club, being invited into the home dressing room earlier this year and handed the best seats in the house, directly behind one of the goals for the game against St Johnstone.

At the end of August the Ultras group were behind an anti-Irish hate march through the centre of Glasgow which attracted a police escort.

Realising how a video clip had portrayed the city and Police Scotland nine people have been arrested and charged with racist offences. Hundreds on the march have so far evaded justice.

With the visiting club handling tickets for that area of the stadium and CCTV in force it shouldn’t be too difficult to identify those involved in the vandalism and using the stickers.

On August 22 a group of Ibrox fans shared videos of their racist abuse of Kyogo Furuhashi, a week later some marched through Glasgow city centre celebrating their hatred of Irish people with thousands more singing racist songs inside Ibrox in a match shown live by Sky Sports.

So far this season the SFA and SPFL have made no comment on these incidents, on Thursday UEFA will handle the Europa League tie against Lyon.
