A yob can be heard behind the camera shouting: "Ya f***ing black b******" before cheers go up as the spot-kick is saved by Joe Lewis.

The short 28-second clip has been viewed more than 39,000 times since it was shared on Scottish Football Away Days Facebook page on Sunday.

Fans have blasted the culprit, calling for him to be found by cops and the Reds and banned.

One person wrote: "Absolutely gutted to hear this from an Aberdeen fan. Hope they find him and ban him for life. Zero excuses."

Another said: "Unfortunately football brings out the worst in some people as well as the best."

One commented: "What a complete k***. Hopefully someone identifies him so he can be dealt with in the appropriate manner."

A fourth replied to the post: "Absolute sh*** and out of order from an aberdeen fan".

Some fans claimed the abuse was actually being lodged at referee Andrew Dallas who awarded the penalty despite the handling of the ball appearing to take place outside the box.
