Crystal Palace star speaks up in support of Celtic star.
Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt has spoken out to condemn the racist abuse directed at Celtic star Scott Sinclair.
Sinclair shared a video which had been shown to him, of an Aberdeen fan voicing obscene racist remarks towards him during last week's Scottish League Cup final.
Celtic won the game 1-0 with Sinclair netting the winner.
Van Aanholt commented via Twitter and believes Sinclair was right to show the video.
No place for this in football ⚽️ or ANY WALK OF LIFE, we must do more to point these people out. We are 1 world 1 race. Love over hate ❤️ https://t.co/5Ll7VWpmVt— Patrick van Aanholt (@pvanaanholt) December 6, 2018
Sinclair has had an outpouring of support, with Van Aanholt a high profile name to join in the outrage.
The £12 million Palace defender's commented were echoed by Aberdeen defender Shay Logan.
Logan called out the fan, via The Scottish Sun, lambasting the disgraceful behaviour as having no place in Scottish football.
