Liverpool to report Spartak Moscow over alleged racial abuse of Rhian Brewster

Liverpool to report Spartak Moscow over alleged racial abuse of Rhian Brewster

Spartak Moscow's club doctor issued the players with a sex ban ahead of tonight's crunch Champions League game at Liverpool.

It is the second time during Liverpool's UEFA Youth League campaign that a player has suffered racist abuse during a match with Spartak.

Brewster played the full 90 minutes in Tranmere, producing an impressive display leading the line alongside Jones and Bobby Adekanye.

The Liverpool Echo reports that Brewster "had to be dragged away by Reds team-mates and staff" at the final whistle after Liverpool completed their 2-0 victory.

It is said that Brewster, who earned the Golden Boot as tournament top scorer during England's recent triumph at the Under-17 World Cup, told match referee Mohammed Al-Hakim what had been said to him by the Spartak player towards the end of the game.

Gerrard had the following to say to media outlets after the game.

It's hard for me to comment on it right now.

"I'd rather talk about Rhian Brewster's performance". It's something that the club will look into and deal with.

Anfield officials will now make an official complaint to Uefa. I don't want to take any gloss off that because he was superb.

Back in September, Nigeria-born forward Bobby Adekanye was subjected to racist chants and monkey gestures from Spartak supporters in the reverse fixture in Russian Federation.

UEFA did charge Moscow but the punishment was just that they could have 500 fewer fans at their next UEFA Youth League.

It remains to be seen whether UEFA will charge Spartak for Wednesday's incident, but it is frustrating to see these issues persist.
