“Football is a unique and very powerful thing that can bring people from different backgrounds, cultures, religions and nationalities together. It may be a cliché but sport really is a universal language that can break down barriers more effectively than just about anything else.

There is no place for racism or discrimination of any kind, full stop. My teammates and I will be proudly be taking part in Show Racism the Red Card’s Fortnight of Action and you should too. Together we can put an end to racism in football once and for all.”

Partick Thistle Football Club condemn all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated within the club.

Show Racism the Red Card are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair, inclusive and accessible for all.

Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.
