Police probe Rangers racism claims

Strathclyde Police yesterday confirmed they are investigating claims by Rangers that two of their players were racially abused. The players allegedly received the abuse via their Twitter accounts.

Neither player was named by police or the club. However, Kyle Bartley – who spent last season on loan at Rangers from Arsenal – indicated on his own Twitter page that the players targeted were Sone Aluko and Maurice Edu.
