Fans of Scottish Premiership side Celtic were caught on camera singing chants about slain soldier Lee Rigby.
Rigby was beheaded by two Daesh supporters back in 2013 so the pro-Irish fans sang in support of the IRA.
Many condemned the sick songs when the clips made the rounds online ahead of the pre-season game against Sunderland. Celtic won the friendly 5-0 but the game was marred by fighting among the fans. The fans who are believed to have been drunk sang the song, alluding to his military job.
Rigby was a corporal, drumming and handling the machine gun in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. The 25-year old was murdered by Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale in the streets of south east London. The killers claimed they were avenging Muslims.
