Celtic Striker Anthony Stokes Slams Hearts Fans For ‘Sectarian Abuse’ Aimed His Way

Following on from Sunday’s fiery Scottish Cup contest at Tynecastle, Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has slammed Hearts supporters for the alleged sectarian abuse he received throughout the game.

Stokes took to Twitter to express his opinion that the Hearts board should stop pointing the finger at other clubs and start looking at their own.

He said: “Maybe Ann Budge should worry about her own fans, never had so many sectarian comments directed at me in a ground like Tynecastle the other day.”

And here’s the Tweet itself.

The Irish star’s Tweet comes after Hearts owner Budge called for Celtic to get tougher with their fans after branding their behaviour “disgraceful'” following her sides 4-0 defeat to the Hoops.

Budge has banned one Hearts fan after they were arrested at the Gorgie ground on Sunday before taking a swipe at the Parkhead club.
