No action will be taken by Instagram against a user who sent sectarian messages to Celtic defender Shane Duffy and mocked his father's death, the social media company have told Sky Sports News.
Duffy shared a series of messages online in February, commenting: "There's abuse which is fine but surely there's a limit."
Instagram decided against taking action after deeming it an isolated incident, with the user also deleting the messages and subsequently apologising.

The social media platform have also renewed their pledge to stamp out online abuse, promising to impose stricter penalties for online abuse, including the removal of accounts.
Duffy was the latest in a long line of professional footballers to receive online abuse, with Republic of Ireland international team-mate James McClean also recently sharing threats sent to him on social media.
Meanwhile, Instagram have restricted messages of the account holder who posted a comment to Aberdeen forward Florian Kamberi saying: "A can't wait for the day u die".
In that instance, if that user breaches Instagram's community standards again their account will be removed.
