POLICE say they are probing reports of sectarian singing by a mob in Glasgow city centre yesterday. 

A large crowd appeared to mock the Irish Famine as it made its way along Argyle Street and Jamaica Street before Sunday's Old Firm derby clash at Ibrox. 

Referring to the 19th-century catastrophe which left more than one million people dead, the song tells Irish people to “go home” and claims they have brought “trouble and shame” to Scotland.

Health secretary Humza Yousaf and lawyer Aamer Anwar were among those to condemn the images and call for action. 

Now, Police Scotland bosses say they are "aware" of the footage and have launched enquiries. 

A force spokesperson said: “We were made aware of sectarian singing by a group of people in the Jamaica Street area of Glasgow on Sunday, August 29.

"Enquiries into the incident are ongoing.”

Health Secretary Yousaf last night condemned the images and called on police to take action. 

Mr Yousaf said: “​​For those hurling racist abuse at our Irish community telling them to 'go home' – Scotland is their home. 

“Disgusted to once again see anti-Irish racism rear its ugly head. Solidarity with our Irish community.

“I am sure Police Scot will hold those responsible to account.”

Patrick Harvie, a Glasgow MSP, also hit out at the footage, writing: "The images of a mob singing anti-Irish racist songs, as they marched through Glasgow escorted by police, ought to be shocking but are shamefully all too familiar.

"At the very least, we need an assurance that every identifiable person in that crowd will face charges." 

Rangers won the derby 1-0 yesterday after defender Filip Helander headed home Borna Barasic's corner.
