SHAFAQNA – A Liverpool FC fan was at the centre of a Twitter storm over a picture of 2 Muslims worshipping during the half-time break at a football match on 8 April 2015.
The picture appeared to be sent from fan’s account, with the caption: “Muslims praying at half time at the match yesterday #DISGRACE.”
In a statement, Liverpool FC said the club reported the tweet to Merseyside Police after receiving complaints.
“Merseyside Police investigated the matter and has referred this to LFC to take appropriate action against the individual involved,” it added. “The club is currently in the process of determining the appropriate action to take and a further update statement will be made in due course.
“Liverpool Football Club would like to remind its supporters that it does not tolerate any form of discrimination and is committed to ensuring that the club and Anfield provides a welcoming and safe environment for all fans regardless of race, religion, gender, age, disability or sexual orientation.”
