Scott Sinclair has posted a picture on social media showing the alleged racist abuse he suffered during Saturday's Old Firm derby. The Celtic winger posted a still from footage of the game at Ibrox, with Celtic beating Rangers 5-1, apparently showing a man making a monkey gesture. Sinclair, who scored the opening goal from the penalty spot, accompanied the picture with the message #notoracism.

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Celtic claimed its biggest victory at Rangers in 120 years on Saturday, humiliating its Glasgow rival 5-1 in the Scottish Premiership. In the season's sixth and final Old Firm duel, Celtic outclassed a feeble Rangers side to move closer to an unbeaten treble. Celtic has already secured a sixth successive title, collected the League Cup, and plays Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final on May 27. The last time Rangers lost a derby so heavily at home was by 4-0 in 1897, two years before moving into its current Ibrox stadium home. Goals from Scott Sinclair and Leigh Griffiths in the first half were followed by strikes from Callum McGregor, Dedryck Boyata and Mikael Lustig after
Yikes. My favorite part, I think, is how none of the Rangers players even protest. It was horribly violent, yes, but it was perfect technique, one-foot low to the ground, ball-first. Everyone just runs back the other way while their teammate is prone on the turf. And if you’ve watched a lot of soccer, you know that it doesn’t take much for players to stop playing and protest a call, or lack thereof. Celtic were victorious 5-1, as well, which is essentially that tackle in scoreline form. Celtic is dominating the SPL this season, so it’s not much of a surprise, but good heavens was that a vicious tackle.
