Call It Out – Kilmarnock Player Suffers Sickening Sectarian Abuse

Kilmarnock are tough competitors, they are often hard to break down, firm in their tackles and can pounce on a mistake. Celtic found that out when Eamonn Brophy smashed home a penalty on Sunday in their 3-1 defeat at Celtic Park.

Another team that have been at the wrong end of Alex Dyer’s side in recent weeks was Steven Gerrard’s Rangers. A goal from Scott Arfield looked enough to seal the points before late strikes from Stephen O’Donnell and Brophy derailed the Gers and gave Dyer’s men the points.

They are commanded by the formidable Irish pairing of Alan Power and captain Gary Dicker but unfortunately their tough style hasn’t gained them many supporters.

Still in 2020, people feel the need to use social media as a platform to abuse. For example, Dicker received a message on Instagram with such abuse. It was not a complaint of his hard challenges or his disciplined displays in centre midfield. He was treated to some utterly deplorable sectarian abuse for nationality.

The screenshots of the message, as Dicker shared in a tweet have yet to be condemned by media outlets despite rushing to support the victims of alleged abuse from supporters.

No person, never mind footballer, deserves this kind of abuse and it is correct for Dicker to call it out and he should receive praise for doing so.

It is time for this behaviour to be called out. Maybe the individual in question would benefit from a course at his club of choosing to educate him on why sectarian abuse is a blight on society.

That same club enjoyed on of the best results in their history yesterday yet their victory is marred with the songbook of religious hatred. UEFA have intervened already this season and may be forced to act again.
