Steve Clarke highlighted to the press the issues of sectarianism in the Scottish game after his side lost 5 – 0 to Rangers in the cup last night.
The Rangers fans were allegedly singing sectarian songs and hurling verbal abuse at the Kilmarnock manager throughout the game. Chants of “sad Fenian bastard” echoed round Ibrox as the home side booked a quarter-final against Aberdeen with a 5-0 win.
The Dundee boss when asked in today's interview before the Hibernian game whether he felt that sectarianism was still a problem in the Scottish game.
‘I think you are always going to get both sides singing those songs, making derogatory comments which are part and parcel of the game.’
Jim McIntyre went on to say; ‘There is absolute no place for it in the modern society and you shouldn’t have to be subjected standing at the side lines’.
Steve Clarke accused the Rangers support of living in the Dark Ages, which was a sentiment echoed by the Dundee Boss.
‘They (The fans) can tell us we’re rubbish all they like, but in terms of the sectarian vile garbage that comes along with it, there is just no place for it as it belongs in the dark ages.
The Dark Blues play The Rangers next Wednesday 27th at Ibrox.
