PAOK Claim Aberdeen Racism allegation is 'product of imagination'

Aberdeen have complained to UEFA their striker Pape Habib Gueye was the subject of alleged racist abuse from PAOK fans during their Europa League draw.

However, the Greek club have denied the claims and insist they are "clearly a product of imagination".

Aberdeen say the incident took place in the second half of the 2-2 draw and immediately told the UEFA venue director, before officially reporting the matter with the match delegate at full time.

UEFA are currently reviewing their official reports and could take disciplinary action or appoint an investigator to look into the allegations.

In a statement, Aberdeen added: "Pape has the unwavering support of his teammates and all at Aberdeen FC will liaise fully with UEFA during the course of their investigations into this very serious matter.

"As a club we have zero tolerance for any form of discrimination or racist abuse. There is no place for such behaviour in football, or society as a whole."
