Millwall fan charged over El-Hadji Diouf abuse
Leeds United striker was allegedly subjected to abuse
Wednesday 13 February 2013
After TV footage was aired that appeared to show some Millwall fans racially abusing the Leeds striker El-Hadji Diouf in a game at the Den in November, police have charged Gerrard Scanlon, 53, from Enfield, with using threatening, abusive or insulting words likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress. He was bailed to appear in court on 27 February.
Millwall will ban anyone found guilty, while captain Danny Shittu said the club are discussing further sanctions.
