Police reportedly investigate claims that Blackburn Rovers striker Colin Kazim-Richards made homophobic gestures to Brighton fans.

Police have reportedly launched an investigation into allegations that Blackburn Rovers striker Colin Kazim-Richards made homophobic gestures during his side's draw with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 26-year-old, who is on loan at Ewood Park from Galatasaray, has been accused of making the gesture at least five times during the 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday.

"We take allegations of homophobic language or gestures seriously," The Sun quotes a police spokesman as saying. "We will take statements and look through CCTV."

The Football Association are also thought to be investigating the claims.
