English club Millwall says a man has been arrested following a
police investigation into racist abuse at a football match against
Leeds last year.
Television footage showed Leeds forward El Hadji Diouf, a former
African footballer of the year, being subjected to racist chants
and taunts throughout the League Championship game on Nov. 18.
Millwall says Gerrard Scanlon, a 53-year-old driver from north
London, has been charged with a racially aggravated public order
offense. He has been released on bail and will appear at a
magistrates court on Feb. 27.
The club says that ”police investigations are ongoing in the
light of recent evidence made available to them.”
