Liverpool FC launches new racism probe as fan is accused of making 'monkey' gesture

A fan has been accused of making racist gestures during Liverpool's FA Cup victory over Manchester United.
Police are now reviewing footage of the game, which was shown on ITV, and Liverpool has launched its own inquiry after an image of the alleged incident was circulated on the internet.
Police stressed it was an isolated incident and said the crowd had been generally well behaved.

A club statement said: ‘Following today’s game we were made aware of an image being circulated of an incident at this afternoon’s FA Cup fourth-round tie.
‘We are working closely with Merseyside Police to establish the facts of what occurred and identify the individual concerned.
‘We would urge any of our supporters with any information to contact the club or the police.’
It is the third incident of this kind in a few months at Anfield, which began with United defender Patrice Evra accusing Luis Suarez of racial abuse, for which the Uruguayan was banned for eight matches following an independent disciplinary inquiry.
