Sectarian songs at PSV investigated by Uefa
Friday 08 April 2011
Rangers have vowed to fight any Uefa disciplinary action over sectarian singing after claiming "disproportionate focus" had been directed towards their fans. The club reacted with "utter dismay" after Uefa confirmed its control and disciplinary committee would discuss an alleged case of discriminatory chanting among supporters at the away leg of their Europa League game against PSV Eindhoven last month.
Meanwhile, anti-racism campaigners Kick It Out yesterday revealed they had contacted Uefa to express concern over the abuse suffered by Emmanuel Adebayor during Real Madrid's Champions League win over Tottenham on Tuesday.
The former Arsenal striker was the target of chants during the match at the Bernabeu, leading to allegations of racism against Spurs fans. Tottenham have vehemently denied the abuse was racist.
