The police are investigating an incident in which a black Oldham player appeared to be the target of abuse from Liverpool fans during an FA Cup third-round match.
Oldham right back Tom Adeyemi was visibly upset late in the game at Anfield on Friday after seemingly taking offense from something shouted from the Liverpool-supporting area known as The Kop.
Merseyside Police said there had been no arrests "on suspicion of racially aggravated behavior" but "the Force and Liverpool Football Club are investigating following an incident that occurred during the second half of the game."
Oldham manager Paul Dickov says "For him to react like that it is obvious something has been said but what has been said I don't know."
