Fulham will take the “greatest action possible” after full-back Cyrus Christie declared that his sister was hit and racially abused by fans throughout Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Barnsley.
Christie stated on Twitter after the video game: “To the Fulham fan that decided to strike my sister at the game today and his spouse who justified his action with racist remarks I hope you take pride in yourself and feel like a big male.
” You’ll get what’s coming to you. Regardless how you felt about the outcome your actions are outrageous.”
The Whites, relegated to the Championship last season, said in a statement: “Fulham Football Club is examining an event which happened in the away end at the Barnsley v Fulham component this afternoon.
” Should the wrongdoers be recognized, the club will be taking the strongest possible action.”
In a declaration, South Yorkshire Authorities stated they were yet to get a report of the occurrence.
” We understand claims circulating on social networks,” the declaration stated. “We are looking into the situations of the alleged occurrence and remain in the process of contacting Fulham Football Club to progress the matter.”
Republic of Ireland global Christie, 26, signed up with Fulham from Middlesbrough in January 2018 and has actually made 33 appearances for the club.
In November 2017 and April 2018 he shared racist abuse he had actually gotten on social networks.
