Liverpool say sorry to Adeyemi

Oldham defender Tom Adeyemi, who claimed he was racially abused by a Liverpool supporter during Friday’s FA Cup third round tie, last night received a full apology from the Anfield club. A 20-year-old man arrested on suspicion of racially abusing the player was released on bail yesterday, according to police. A statement from Liverpool read: “Whatever the outcome of what is now a police investigation, all of us are deeply sorry for what happened on Friday night and our players and our club pass on our sincere regrets to Tom Adeyemi for the upset and distress he suffered as a result of the matter at hand.”
