Millwall say any fan found guilty of racist abuse will be banned

Millwall say they are working with the police to identify a fan accused of racially abusing a Barnsley player after Saturday's Championship match between the two sides.

It is claimed a visiting player was abused "in the immediate aftermath" of Barnsley's 2-1 win at The Den.

Police are investigating the claim and Millwall say anyone found guilty of racism will be given a lifetime ban.

They would also be able to attend the club's 'Fan Diversity Scheme'.

The nine-week programme is designed to re-educate fans' understanding of different cultures and stereotyping.
