DaMarcus Beasley scored a goal for Rangers on Tuesday but it wasn't his actions on the field that made headlines. Beasley was the target of several racist chants during Rangers' 1-0 Champions League qualifying win over FK Zeta in Montenegro.
It's absurd that this happens but it does. Though not rampant, racist fans are an unfortunate part of soccer. Players have dealt with fans making monkey noises before and even Spain manager Luis Aragones was involved in a racist scandal.
The problem isn't unique to Eastern European nations either. This has happened in Mexico, Spain and Italy among other places. FIFA needs to come down hard on this sort of behavior. It has no business in soccer.
