Partick Thistle are seeking information from their own supporters after an allegation of racist abuse was brought to light.

The Firhill club has released a statement to reveal that alleged racial comments were made by supporters situated within the John Lambie Stand during last Friday's match with Queen's Park.

They are seeking witnesses from their own fans who sit in that section of the stadium to come forward so that the matter can be dealt with.

A club statement reads: "We are seeking information from supporters that were situated in the John Lambie Stand on Friday evening, during our victory over Queens Park.

"An allegation has been made in relation to racial comments being made by specific attendees at the match, situated within this stand.

"As such we would ask anyone who witnessed any such behaviour to get in touch with CEO Gerry Britton via the email address. All information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence.

"Partick Thistle has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and will do everything possible to ensure no incidents of racist behaviour take place within Firhill stadium."
