Police to probe racist behaviour against Rangers Edu

Police in Glasgow will go on a hunt to find the fans who allegedly racially abused Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu.

Strathclyde Police have received an official complaint about the incident which occurred after Rangers' 4-1 loss to Romanian outfit Unirea Urziceni in the Champions League on Tuesday night and have confirmed they will take action.

A spokesman said last night: "It occurred at 10pm following the match. A man, accompanied by another man, shouted racial abuse at the player within the school car park in Hinshelwood Drive, Ibrox.

"Officers are viewing CCTV footage and working with Rangers FC to trace the person responsible."

Edu's Rangers and USA teammate DaMarcus Beasley says the abuse his mate copped was simply not on and that there was no room for it in the today's game.

"What was said to Mo was not right. End of the day it's a game - and race has nothing to do about it. Sad, sad," Beasley wrote on his Twitter page.

"Fan or not, should NEVER happen in life, let alone after a match. But Mo is alright, just shocked.

"We all should be behind him. He knows you all support him which you should do on and off the pitch. Thanks."
