The police are investigating an incident in which Oldham right back Tom Adeyemi was racially abused by Liverpool fans, leaving him visibly shaken by what had been said.

We won`t go into details but the Sun reports exactly what was shouted at Adeyemi leaving the player close to tears and in need of calming down from Liverpool`s Steven Gerrard and Dirk Kuyt.

A discussion then followed between the fourth official and a police officer down by the tunnel.

Merseyside Police said there had been no arrests ‘on suspicion of racially aggravated behavior’ but ‘the Force and Liverpool Football Club are investigating following an incident that occurred during the second half of the game.’

Liverpool released a statement saying it ‘will continue to work with the police to establish the details of what actually happened.’
