FA probe Mido taunts

FA chiefs have confirmed they will be looking into possible racial abuse directed at Middlesbrough's Mido during Sunday's Tees-Tyne derby.

Newcastle fans subjected the Egyptian to a torrent of abuse during the 2-2 draw, and it is now claimed that some chants were Islamophobic.

"We will be contacting both clubs for their observations on these events and we will take it from there," confirmed an FA spokesman.
