Dundee United star Jamie Robson has been disciplined by the club after he “blacked up” for a fancy dress party.
The player will undertake diversity training after the picture, which the club described as “potentially offensive”, caused outrage online.
The 20-year-old apologised “for any offence I have caused”.
“I fully accept the naivety of my actions and can see my actions fall short of what is expected,” Robson said.
“As soon as I became aware that I could offend, I took immediate action and removed both the make-up and costume. I have also apologised to the club for not adhering to the standards expected.”
Show Racism the Red Card has renewed calls for talks about the issue in Scottish football in the wake of the storm, and a number of other high-profile incidents.
The charity has again urged sports minister Joe FitzPatrick, MSP for Dundee City West, to meet campaigners after claiming he failed to respond to a direct request from bosses in November.
The outfit said racism was “obviously a problem in Scotland” and revealed it wrote to Mr FitzPatrick directly in mid-November in an effort to find new ways to tackle the issue.

A spokeswoman said: “We put in a request for a meeting to the sports minister a few weeks ago but so far we have had nothing back.
“I know that our chief executive is pursuing this and we are very keen to get something set up. Over the last few weeks there have been so many reports of players being abused by fans – something needs to change.”
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes and full back Shay Logan, Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson, and Celtic’s Scott Sinclair are among those to speak out about the scourge of racism in the Scottish game.
The Robson incident comes nearly a year after the player was hauled in for talks with club bosses after footage emerged online of him dancing and drinking a green liquid from a pint glass while driving.
Show Racism the Red Card said the player had been “really really stupid” and pointed to Dundee United’s record as a “strong supporter” of the anti-racism message.
“It’s super disappointing that this incident is surrounding a player from Dundee United because we have done a phenomenal amount of work with the club,” the spokeswoman added.
Mr FitzPatrick was asked whether he would commit to meeting with the charity and if he agreed that racism is a problem in Scotland.
A Scottish Government spokesperson, answering on Mr FitzPatrick’s behalf, said: “We fully support the great work being done by Show Racism the Red Card.
“Mr FitzPatrick has received an invite to attend their showcase event at Hampden Park next January and has accepted and looks forward to an engaging and informative event.”
