The 22-year-old Man City loanee was giving an interview on Dutch TV when he repeated a chant sung about him by supporters.

Celtic have confirmed they will contest the charge: “We are very surprised and disappointed that this has even found its way to an SFA judicial panel,” said the club in a statement. “John Guidetti will be defending this charge.”

SFA compliance officer Vincent Lunny told the BBC that “It would appear that their focus is on the comment attacking Rangers or making fun of Rangers for having gone into liquidation back in 2012. 

“It is, I think, significant that there’s no mention of it being sectarian or otherwise based on religion.”

Though he added a reminder that Leigh Griffiths was charged last year for singing ‘Hearts are going bust’.

Guidetti has until 3pm on 30th March to respond.
