Dundee Utd pass findings to police after racist abuse allegation


Dundee United have passed their findings to Police Scotland after completing their own internal investigation into the alleged racist abuse of midfielder Jeando Fuchs by a Ross County supporter.

The Cameroonian claimed the incident occurred as he celebrated United’s winning goal at Tannadice last Saturday. At full-time, manager Tam Courts held up a ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ t-shirt in front of the visiting County fans.

Ross County were adamant there was no racial abuse, with manager Malky Mackay and chief executive Stephen Ferguson both saying that United stewards in the stand had confirmed none had taken place.

However, United have issued an update after carrying out their own “rigorous” inquiry this week.

A statement on their website read: “Dundee United have completed a rigorous and full investigation into the allegation of racial abuse towards Jeando Fuchs and also attempted to identify the person(s) responsible.

We would like to thank supporters of both clubs who came forward voluntarily to provide valuable and significant detailed information about the incident. We also thank the match officials for their professional and compassionate handling of the incident.
