The Hampden head honcho and former Hibs chairman is the latest to hit out at the supporters who brought shame on the club following their trophy day presentation on Saturday. Thousands of fans breached Covid-19 guidelines to gather outside Ibrox Stadium during the 4-0 win over Aberdeen before marching to George Square in Glasgow’s city centre which descended into chaos with police forced to move in. And in a statement released by the SFA, Petrie said: “While the majority of the club’s fan base will have celebrated this achievement safely and in line with COVID-19 guidelines across the country and beyond, the scenes witnessed in and around Glasgow’s George Square have brought embarrassment to the national game. “Scenes that require the First Minister, Justice Secretary, Police Scotland and the Scottish Police Federation to issue condemnatory statements, and images that dominated the news agenda throughout the weekend, represent an abomination not a celebration.

. “The Scottish FA has recently issued its equality, diversity and inclusion strategy, Football Unites . Events on Saturday at George Square served only to depict our game in the poorest light and we condemn the behaviour in the strongest terms.
