FAI report racist abuse to the police

 

By Robert Jones

The Football Association of Ireland have referred allegedly "shocking" racist abuse of Cyrus Christie to the Irish police.

The Middlesbrough defender scored an own goal in his country's 5-1 World Cup play-off defeat to Denmark and was subjected to vile comments on Twitter in the aftermath.

Londonderry-born team-mate James McClean drew attention to the situation while speaking at the PFA Ireland awards last Saturday, and the FAI have since reported the issue to authorities.

PFA Ireland and anti-racism charity Show Racism the Red Card issued a joint statement last night, condemning posts they say urged Christie to go to Jamaica and talked of lynching the 25-year-old.

"We fully support all efforts to stamp out racism from the game and that includes comments on social media," said PFA Ireland's general secretary Stephen McGuinness. "The nature of this incident is really shocking and no player should be subjected to that and we hope that the perpetrator is called to account."
