Celtic fan group the Green Brigade have hit back at Rangers over claims they subjected Gers' women's team to 'misogynistic and sectarian abuse'.

The Hoops supporters piled into K-Park in East Kilbride to take in Celtic's 3-1 victory over their rivals in the SWPL.

The Light Blues accused the group of targeting their players with abuse during the 90 minutes and even revealed they are considering tighter security measures for their female stars in the wake of the alleged incident.

But a statement was released by the Green Brigade a short time later where they snapped back at Rangers and urged them to "re-educate themselves".

The statement read: "The Green Brigade takes pride in our efforts to support access to football for all irrespective of race, religion or sex. 

"On Saturday we displayed banners and distributed leaflets to highlight the inhumane treatment of asylum seekers in Glasgow. 

"On Sunday, we offered our support to the Celtic Women's team, enjoying a familiar victory over our inferior Glasgow rivals. 

"Neither action was monumental however merely a continuation of the small, humble steps we take to tackle discrimination and promote inclusivity.

"Clearly, we treat recent allegations of misogyny and sectarianism with the contempt that they deserve. 

"We are content that our efforts across the weekend have been well received and would encourage the offended party from Sunday to re-educate themselves on misogyny and sectarianism. 

"Given their vast experience of the latter, we would expect them to be better informed. Green Brigade."

Celtic themselves also told of their surprise at the allegations made by Rangers after Sunday's match.

A spokesperson for the club said: “We are surprised by these claims which have been made today.

“We have no knowledge of any incidents at all and nothing whatsoever has been raised with the club either at the time or since Sunday's match.”
