The Diamonds gaffer seems oblivious as he responds to his side's 2-1 defeat to Montrose on Saturday.
Airdrieonians have scored a social media own goal after sharing a post-match interview with boss Ian Murray as a pro-IRA song blared in the background.
Murray was speaking to club media after his side's narrow League One defeat to Montrose at Links Park on Saturday.
But as the former Hibs and Rangers striker responds to the 2-1 loss, he seems oblivious to The Wolfe Tones' "Celtic Symphony" which can clearly be heard playing.
It's unclear who is playing the song or where it is coming from as it lasts for over a minute of Murray's interview.
The song contains the pro-IRA slogan "up the RA" and some Diamonds fans were unimpressed that the video was posted on the club's Vimeo channel.
Airdrie posted a link to the interview on their official Twitter account and the song didn't go unnoticed as it picked up several retweets and replies.

But one Diamonds fan was unimpressed.

It’s getting fckn ridiculous now. Dribble that contains lyrics of up the ra isn’t sectarian? Dirty bstrds. Like said previously on the thread I doubt this is anything to do with airdrie boys??

They were playing in Glasgow on Friday. I went to see Massive Wagons at the Garage and ended up leaving early cause I knew my train would have been crawling with them.

Didn't the IRA kill a Catholic policeman because he refused to believe in their ideology? Surely that means the IRA are a sectarian terrorist organisation??

That needs to be reiterated over and over again to remove the "it's not sectarian" argument.
Not sure to be honest, but there’s no sensible or logical argument for them not being labelled sectarian.

Many years ago I played in GTFB, (Greengairs) Airdrie once had 14 Orange bands, cracking wee place,
In the 70s we took a supporters bus up to Montrose v Rangers in the cup, as we did then we stayed overnight and went to the dancing, tarriers came in late on from somewhere and a few of us took a battering.

I'm surprised at that. Any dressing room that I was ever in and that shite would have been turfed into the shower room.

I can't believe somebody wouldn't have said to turn that shite off. Strange days.

I know that most lower league teams have players that support us and them but surely other players would be having a word about playing that shite?

I wouldn’t put my hands up to that
