A Rangers fan has caused a social-media storm after taking a picture of a child at the ape enclosure at a zoo with the caption “Lacie n Scott Sinclair.
Then posting the pic on Twitter she doubled down on the racism by saying “Just bumped into Scott Sinclair at Edinburgh zoo”.
Amy Halcrow from Oban posted the picture on her Facebook and Twitter accounts which now appear to be deleted, but the racist snaps were picked up by Twitter user Paul P. Kurth who screenshot and re-tweeted them.
The twitter post has now been shared and re-tweeted hundreds of times with some reporting the post to the police and to the woman’s employers.

On Amy’s facebook she has also posted a picture of her boyfriend meeting Rangers player James Tavernier obviously unaware of the irony that the right back is also black.
The racist picture of the child at an ape enclosure and references to Scott Sinclair comes just a day after a man was arrested for racially abusing the Celtic player with similar monkey taunts at the weekends old firm game.
In scenes reminiscent of the bad old days of the 80’s surely this kind of behaviour can’t ever become anything close to acceptable ever again.
What do you think? Should Amy be brought to task over this behaviour ? Or is it just a young girl making a daft mistake on social media ?
Is racism becoming a problem again in Scottish football ?
