Published Add your comment

A 20-year-old man arrested on suspicion of racially abusing Oldham footballer Tom Adeyemi during an FA Cup game against Liverpool has been released on bail, police said on Sunday.

The man, from Aintree, was arrested on Saturday by Merseyside Police, who are investigating the incident which took place in the second half of the match at Anfield on Friday night. Late in the FA Cup third-round fixture, the 20-year-old, on loan from Norwich, appeared to take offence at something shouted from the Kop.

A police spokesman said the suspect, who was arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence, has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
