The Barrhead News has reported that angry customers have called for a boycott of a chinese takeaway in Barrhead following a number of sectarian comments on the owner's Facebook page.

The remarks of Capital Chinese own, Robert Wong, appeared after an Old Firm match between Celtic and Rangers earlier in March.

On example described the match referee as "a dirty tattie munching c***" - using a derogatory term referring to Irish people and sometimes Celtic fans. 

He also allegedly targetted Scott Brown with a message and shared a post ending in "#we'reuptoourknees" referring to the lyric in the controversial 'Billy Boys' song. 

One man, who asked not to be named, contacted the Barrhead News to express his disgust at the “totally unacceptable” comments.

He said: “I for one won’t be bringing my business anywhere near his establishment.”

Frances Mcgoldrick also vowed to boycott the Capital takeaway.

She wrote: “Don’t care what you believe and support but, as a businessman, (he) should keep his mouth shut.”

Jacqueline Clark added: “This is disgusting.”

The comments have also been slammed by anti-bigotry charity Nil by Mouth.

Dave Scott, the charity’s campaign director, said: “Sadly, we are seeing more and more people use social media sites to direct abusive, sectarian and threatening abuse at others.

“This is often because they see the internet as a place where they can engage in such behaviour without consequences. However, this isn’t the case."
