Partick Thistle are appealing to their supporters for information over a racial comment made during their win over Queen’s Park on Friday night.

The remarks are said to have been made by attendees within the John Lambie stand of Firhill during the 4-0 victory in Maryhill.

Anyone who heard any such comments or has any other relevant information has been asked to contact club CEO Gerry Britton.

On Tuesday, the Championship club reminded fans that they have a “zero-tolerance policy” towards racism and insisted they will do all they can to enforce that policy.

A statement released on their social media channels said: “We are seeking information from supporters that were situated in the John Lambie Stand on Friday evening, during our victory over Queen’s 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.”

Goals from Kyle Turner, Danny Mullen and a double from Kevin Holt sealed an impressive victory for the Jags against their promotion rivals.

The win moved Thistle up to third place, three points behind the Spiders and league leaders Dundee who also have a game in hand.
