Greenock Morton show racism the red card

Greenock Morton Football Club are proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Cards Fortnight of Action from 5 to 19 October.

Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years, the SPFL and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland 15 years ago.

In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC’s work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.

All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend – Friday 5, Saturday 6, and Sunday 7 October. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and society.

Players in over 40 European Countries are involved in similar events as part of FARE network against racism and discrimination.

We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces.

Ton goalkeeper Derek Gaston said: “Racism has no place in football and no place in society. Everyone at Morton is absolutely committed to kicking racism out of football.

“As professional footballers we are in a position to set an example and we are proud to support Show Racism the Red Card’s fortnight of action.”

Morton condemn all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated within the club.

Show Racism the Red Card are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police, and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair and inclusive for all.

Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background.

We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society. Show your support for tackling racism:
