Two men have been charged over allegedly racist remarks made at Pittodrie during the Aberdeen v Rangers match last week.

A number of fans in the ground reported the abuse to police during the game on Wednesday night, which ended 4-2.

They were in the south stand in the stadium.

The pair – aged 47 and 57 and both from Aberdeen – will appear in court at a later date.

Sergeant Ross Geddes, of the Divisional Alcohol Violence Reduction Unit, said: “I would like to thank those who brought their concerns to our attention and to those who assisted with our investigation.”

“Offensive behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated and anyone who becomes involved in disorder will be dealt with robustly.”
