THOSE behind a sticker appearing to mock victims of the tragic Ibrox disaster have been slammed for the "sick" act. 

A member of the public, who wished to remain anonymous, got in touch with the Glasgow Times after spotting the sticker on a fence outside high-rise flats on Helenvale Street, in Parkhead. 

The person, who revealed themselves to be a Celtic fan, hit out and said the mocking of the disaster "needs to be stopped" after coming across the message - which is facing onto a busy street. 

It reads: "RIP RFC", with a graphic of a tombstone with "+ 66" and a smiley face.

Glasgow Times: Glasgow Times: On January 2, 1971, 66 people died and 200 were injured in a crush as supporters tried to leave the Southside stadium. All of the victims were under the age of 50.  

Dave Scott, director of Nil By Mouth - a charity working to achieve a society free from sectarianism - slammed the discovery. 

He said: "Sixty-six people lost their lives at the Ibrox stadium disaster, including children.

"If you print or distribute sick stickers like this you are a pretty low-life individual and as well as anger I feel pity for you if this is what you are choosing to do with your life." 

Nil By Mouth was set up by Glasgow teenager Cara Henderson in response to the brutal sectarian murder of her friend Mark Scott in 1995 as he made his way home from a football match in Glasgow.

The member of the public said: "I am a Celtic supporter who hopes you can highlight this as mocking the Ibrox disaster seems to be becoming more of a thing and needs to be stopped."
