After a Swansea City defender allegedly received racial abuse from a Luton Town supporter during Saturday’s 3-3 draw, Bedfordshire Police have begun an inquiry.
Liverpool leased the centre back to the South Wales club for the season, and he was replaced at halftime with the visitors behind 3-0.
An official report was filed to match official Tony Harrington and Bedfordshire Police, according to the club.
‘Towards the end of today’s Championship encounter against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road, a complaint of racist abuse was made over statements made towards Swansea City’s Rhys Williams by a home crowd,’ Swansea wrote in a statement on the club website.
‘Swansea City condemns all forms of racism and abuse, as it has no place in football or in society.’
‘The club would like to express its gratitude to Bedfordshire Police and Luton Town Football Club for their prompt responses at the conclusion of the game.’
