Celtic’s Europa League play-off opponents have confirmed they have opened their own investigation into the racist chants heard from the home section during the game in Sweden where Celtic won 4-1 on the night.

Celtic posted their unique camera angle highlights of the game on social media 24 hours after the game but quickly had to delete them after the camera mic picked up alleged racist abuse aimed at Boli Bolingoli.

The club apologised for posting the video and put it down to bad language for the take down. Celtic fans were quick to pick the club’s multimedia team up on this and wanted them to alert AIK to the chants.

This looks like it has been done because UEFA have not picked up on it but the club have opened their own investigation.

Where the camera was sitting, it’s easy to identify which part of the ground the language came from.

AIK stadium safety officer Jens Andersson told RecordSport: “We have done a full internal investigation as to what has or has not happened with relation to this incident”

“There are still people we want to interview who have been away, so we are extending it.

“When we conclude this investigation, the club will act accordingly. But we wish to make it very clear AIK will not stand for any form of racism.”

Hopefully anybody found guilty of this ridiculous, backwards chanting will be dealt with by the club.
