No crime has been found involving a video of Rangers players singing in celebration following their triumphant Premiership win, police say.
An investigation was launched after the clip allegedly showing the use of sectarian language was reported to Police Scotland.
The video shows a group of players singing along to the song Sweet Caroline at Ibrox Stadium after the team’s defeat of Aberdeen on May 15.
Police said they were “assessing” the video and would meet with the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service as part of their enquiries.
But on Friday, Police Scotland announced that, following an extensive investigation, no crime took place.
In a previous statement Rangers FC said it had sought legal advice and was confident that no criminality took place.
The statement read: “We are aware of a video circulating on social media. It is evident that this video was shared with an adjoining narrative which attempts to discredit our players and the reputation of Rangers Football Club. This highlights the dangers of ‘trial by social media.’
“It is deeply concerning that this video has been taken as genuine and has been shared widely including by some political representatives who should be mindful of their influence and legal processes.
“Our squad is richly diverse. Sectarianism is unacceptable and has no place in our club which is underlined by our Everyone Anyone campaign.
“We are confident that no criminality took place, we have sought legal advice and look forward to cooperating with Police Scotland.”
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “In relation to a video circulating on social media showing Rangers players allegedly using sectarian language on Saturday, May 15, extensive enquiries have been carried out and no criminality has been established.”
