Liverpool release a statement regarding the alleged abuse suffered by Tom Adeyemi in the recent FA Cup match against Oldham.

Liverpool have released a statement regarding the latest race row to hit the club.

The statement outlines the steps that they are taking in their investigation into the alleged abuse directed at Tom Adeyemi in the FA Cup match against Oldham on Friday.

The club has been criticised for not being proactive enough, especially considering the damage done throughout the recent Luis Suarez case.

"Liverpool Football Club continue to work closely with Merseyside Police to establish all the facts surrounding the incident that occurred during last night's game. We take this matter extremely seriously and have today provided the police with the evidence we currently have available to us," the statement reads.

"This includes CCTV coverage and still photography of what we believe to be the relevant part of the stadium, statements from matchday stewards in that area and full access to all the footage captured by the cameras filming the match for our in-house TV operation.

"In addition, we have examined records of the tickets purchased in that part of the ground to see if they provide any additional information and have passed that on to the police. Finally, we would also urge any of our supporters who witnessed this incident or saw the individual involved and who have not already done so, to contact either the club or the police."

Liverpool currently sit sixth in the table, two points behind fifth-placed Arsenal.
