In the video, a Dons supporter can be heard racially abusing Sinclair as he stepped up to take a penalty.

It’s a shocking insult and one that has no place in society – and Sinclair was strong in his reaction to it:

Since posting the video, he’s had a load of support from Scottish football fans – not just those who follow Celtic.

And he’s also had a lot of backing from his team-mates, with Scott Brown, Nir Bitton and Mikael Lustig posting their messages of support:

There are no doubt plenty more messages of support in private – as well as thousands more messages across social media from fans who are keen to let Sinclair know how valuable he is to them.
