SHOW Racism the Red Card campaign manager Jordan Allison has called on Holyrood to take action to educate the population on the damage that anti-Catholic and anti-Irish language can cause.

Allison welcomed the widespread condemnation the alleged singing of The Famine Song received from both Celtic and Rangers fans following a march through Glasgow city centre before the Old Firm game at Ibrox back in August.

“For Show Racism The Red Card and other anti-racism education charities, there are four ways racism can manifest itself,” he said. “That is if you are racially prejudiced because of your skin colour, your religion, your nationality or your culture.
