Millwall Issue Statement Following Sordell Claims

After Marvin Sordell took to Twitter to complain of racial abuse during today's game, the club have released a statement saying they are taking the claims very seriously.

Sordell said on Twitter.

'Putting the match aside, its 2012 in england and people are still shouting racial abuse at a football game!? #shocking

'Chungy, Pratts, Benik and i had all sorts of things said to us. The police were standing yards away and did nothing...

'Funniest thing is if had come on and scored and gave them some back, i would be the one who got fined. #kickitout? Yeah im sure.'

In response to this, Millwall issued the following statement on the official site.

'Millwall and Bolton are investigating allegations made by Bolton player Marvin Sordell that he was subjected to racial abuse by an individual whilst warming up as a substitute. The two clubs remain determined to do everything in their power to ensure that racist behaviour will not be tolerated. We will be speaking tot he police and match officials on this matter but no further comment will be made until this process has been completed and the investigations have been concluded.'
