Abstract

Sectarianism can be thought of as discrimination of a group based on their religious beliefs or attitudes, and in the context of Scotland more often than not relates to relations between Catholics and Protestants (Deuchar & Holligan, 2010). Sectarianism in relation to Scottish football is difficult to define, and its continued existence is somewhat disputed (Bruce, Glendinning, Paterson, & Rosie, 2005; McKerrell, 2012; Walls & Williams, 2005). For a more detailed discussion on the political and social contexts behind sectarianism in Scotland then see Bruce (1988) and Kelly (2011)
