Caley Thistle have taken “appropriate disciplinary action” after footage emerged of an apparent sectarian slur on a team bus.
The footage was shared through the Instagram account of club striker Nathan Austin with players seen singing along to the pop hit Sweet Caroline.
The video apparently shows players draped in club apparel on board a bus with the pop classic blaring out. Players are seen dancing and singing along, with one player holding what appears to be a beer bottle before an anti-Catholic comment is heard.
The video emerged after Caley Thistle were held to a 1-1 draw with Dundee United.
The club published a statement today condemning the footage.
It said: “On Saturday, footage was shared on social media, showing conduct unbefitting of Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
“The club takes this matter incredibly seriously. Following a full investigation into these events, the club has taken appropriate disciplinary action and reminded the team of their responsibilities to supporters, the community and the authorities.
“The club will not be making any further comment on this matter.”
