Tottenham ambassador Gary Mabbutt believes fans' chants of 'Yiddos' provides a "difficult" set of questions that will take the relevant bodies a long time to answer.

Spurs have a historic Jewish connection and have defended their supporters, saying they have taken ownership of the phrase to stop it being used as an insult by opposing fans. However, the Society of Black Lawyers insist that argument is not acceptable and will hold talks with the Metropolitan Police before pressing ahead with a complaint.

Asked about the use of 'Yiddos', Mabbutt told Press Association Sport: "It is difficult. I think if it is causing offence to people then it has to be looked at."
