Rangers keeper Wes Foderingham has hit out at elements of the club’s support after they racially abused Celtic forward Scott Sinclair in last month’s Glasgow derby.
Sinclair scored the opening goal in Celtic’s 5-1 demolition of Rangers and during the celebrations, a number of Rangers supporters were pictured aiming monkey gestures at the former Aston Villa player.

Speaking to STV Sport, Foderingham said: “It’s disappointing. Nobody wants to see that in football, especially not a club I represent. It’s a minority. It’s one or two that have spoiled the whole atmosphere for fans that have come and watched Rangers and Celtic week in and week out.
“The Rangers fans have been fantastic, all season they have been superb, and since I joined the club. The majority of Rangers fans do not condone what happened and the club have put a statement out and dealt with the fan accordingly.”
Foderingham was speaking as an ambassador for Kick It Out, an organisation that tackles racism and discrimination in football.
