UEFA have charged Macedonian side FK Rabotnicki over allegations of racist chanting in last week's Europa League qualifying game against Liverpool.

Pictures emerged after the game that showed Rabotnicki fans appearing to direct 'monkey' taunts at Liverpool players.

Liverpool started the game with two black players in David Ngog, who scored twice in the Reds' 2-0 win in Skopje last Thursday, and impressive 19-year-old winger David Amoo.

UEFA have charged Rabotnicki with the improper conduct of supporters.

A statement from European football's governing body read: "The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has opened a disciplinary case against FK Rabotnicki for the improper conduct of supporters during their UEFA Europa League third qualifying round first-leg match against Liverpool FC on July 29 in Skopje, FYR Macedonia.

"The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on Thursday, August 19."

The return leg takes place at Anfield on Thursday evening.
