Police stopped a group of fans in the Jamaica Street area of the city center.

Rangers banned three Rangers fans from attending any matches indefinitely following a video of a group singing racial songs on Sunday.

Social media footage showed Rangers fans singing a sectarian song before their club's win over Celtic at Ibrox.

Police Scotland also arrested and charged three of the men.

"Rangers wrote to three individuals to confirm their ban indefinitely," stated a club statement.

"We reiterate our club's stance against discrimination and, once more, we underline our approach towards so-called fans' who bring disrepute to Rangers FC."

Police stated that the arrested men, aged 19-21 and 24, were among the "numerous" who had been expected to be taken into custody.

According to Ch Sutherland, racism "would not tolerated."

The Rangers' statement follows a week in which the Scottish champions issued indefinite sanction to fans who were seen in a video singing a racist song about Celtic forward Kyogo Furuhashi.

It also prohibited the supporters' club from receiving tickets for future fixtures.
