Scotland’s First Minister has condemned the “vile anti-Catholic prejudice” expressed by Rangers fans who rioted in Glasgow city centre following the team’s first league title win for ten years. She was echoed by Holyrood justice secretary Humza Yousaf who has promised swift action against any form of hate crime.

A spokesman for the Catholic Church in Scotland said: “We welcome the First Minister’s condemnation of what she has described as ‘vile anti-Catholicism’ and hope that police reports passed to Procurators Fiscal make reference to the expressions of such hatred.
