Football club Rangers have announced they have indefinitely banned a supporters club from attending games.

The club announced today that their investigation into a video showing fans chanting racial slurs is now complete and individuals have been identified.

In a statement the Ibrox club said: "The individuals involved have been identified and will be banned indefinitely from all Rangers games...furthermore, the Rangers Supporters Club of which they were members and travelled with to the game, have been banned from receiving tickets for future fixtures."

On Monday Police Scotland issued a statement: "Police Scotland is aware of a video circulating on social media and officers are liaising with the club to make relevant enquiries."

The offensive chants took place on a supporters' bus prior to Rangers' Scottish Premiership clash with Ross County in Dingwall and were aimed at Celtic's Japanese player Kyogo Furuhashi.

In the video, fans can be heard singing "Furuhashi ate my dog, ate my dog" as they repeat the chant over and over.
