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."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
