RAIL passengers were left “disgusted” by football supporters’ sectarian singing as they returned from a match, police said.

British Transport Police received complaints about a group of men singing offensive songs on the 11.36pm Glasgow to Perth service on February 19.

They have appealed for the public’s help to trace the men, thought to have been returning from a Europa League match in Glasgow.

Celtic had taken on Inter Milan at Parkhead on the day of the incident.

Constable John McErlane said the behaviour will not be tolerated.

He said: “There really is no need for such unsavoury behaviour on the rail network and the actions of the men disgusted other passengers, prompting complaints, and I am anxious to speak with anyone who witnessed it to get in touch.”
