Kyogo Furuhashi is a Japanese footballer who plays for Celtic.
The images were posted on Snapchat and have since been shared online by outraged football fans on both sides.
In one of the latest clips captioned “Let’s All Do the Kyogo,” a Rangers fan can be seen pulling his eyes to the side.
Another man then joins in and the person filming can be heard chanting “let everyone do Kyogo nananana”.
The majority of the men in the images are wearing Rangers football tops.
Fans appear to be intoxicated as alcohol can be seen in a number of clips as supporters dance on the bus while chanting.
The video on Twitter has now been shared more than 1,000 times and people have urged Scottish police to take action following the incident.
One said: “Everyone should @policeScotland until they figure this out. Shockingly, this is allowed in Scotland. Not good enough. Disgusting.”
Another added: “Vile people. @RangersFC needs to call him and ASAP.
“There are some people in our media who turn a blind eye to their base of support and especially outside support. Can guarantee it will be one of many buses like this today. # kickitout #racism. “
One person also wrote: “The Rangers are rolling out through and through, but it’s completely out of service and everyone should be in a lot of trouble!”
A spokesperson for Rangers FC said they are currently investigating the footage.
They said: “Rangers condemns all forms of racism and discrimination.
“Those who engage in such behavior are not representative of our club or the staunch support that has supported us through thick and thin.
“We are currently investigating to identify those involved.”
Scottish Police have been contacted for comment.
