The Scottish Football Association is already looking at the footage and the Premiership champions fined the former Hibernian striker last week after footage showed him singing "Hearts are going bust" in a pub before attending the Leith side's 2-0 defeat at Tynecastle.

But a new video emerged on Sunday which appears to show the Hoops forward singing and dancing as Hibs fans sing a derogatory song about former Hearts player Rudi Skacel.

A Celtic statement on Monday read: "Due to an ongoing police investigation we are unable to comment. However, the club takes the allegations extremely seriously and have launched our own internal investigation."

Police Scotland confirmed on Sunday evening that it was investigating the incident.

A spokeswoman said: "Following an article in a Sunday newspaper alleging racist chanting by a 23-year-old Scottish Premier League footballer, inquiries are being initiated by Police Scotland."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
