CELTIC striker John Guidetti has appeared on Dutch TV singing “the huns are deid”. The Hoops forward, on-loan at Parkhead from Manchester City, sang the song while being interviewed on Holland’s FC Rijnmond football programme. He sang: “Oh John Guidetti, puts the ball in the net-y, he’s a Super Swede and the huns are deid, walking in Guidetti wonderland.” Afterwards the 22-year-old Celtic star said the terracing chant was “a good song”. A number of Rangers fans have now taken to Twitter accusing the Swede of using an offensive term. It follows a recent petition lobbying the Scottish Parliament to have the use of word “hun” outlawed. The petition was launched by a group of Rangers fans who claim pejorative term used against Protestants. In 2012, three Celtic fans walked free from court after a not proven verdict on a breach of a peace charge said to have been aggravated by religious prejudice relating to a banner displaying the slogan ‘Huns FC’. Speaking about Guidetti’s TV appearance, Nil By Mouth Campaign Director Dave Scott said Scottish football chiefs need to do more to educate players about terms likely to cause offence.
