This week Celtic Football Club is showing their support for Scottish football’s anti-racism campaign as they Showed Racism the Red Card. 

To mark the Show Racism the Red Card Scotland's week of Action, Celtic Women manager Fran Alonso alongside his team have again made a strong stance against racism, saying enough is enough to racism within football.  

The Celtic women's manager said "We all should show the red card to racism. Racism has no place in football or in society. In sport and in our society we still suffer from it, so it is important to stand against it, it is not enough to just be non-racist. 

“We must fight it and reach unity in diversity.”

Winger Rachel Donaldson also spoke to our team and explained that, “Celtic is known for being a club open to all, so the values of tolerance and inclusion are really important to us and we'll always back the work done by Show Racism the Red Card. There's sadly still discrimination across all walks of life and we need to work to end this.”

Defender Jodie Bartle echoed both Alonso and Donaldson's comments: “We're very fortunate to be in a position to support Show Racism the Red Card and the work they do.

“Discrimination of any kind has no place in football or society and we as footballers can use our platform to help promote inclusion and respect across the board.” 

The Ghirls believe this is one of the most important campaigns to stand behind and continue to push for more inclusivity and in their core.
