      Merseyside Police are investigating an alleged racially motivated attack on the Liverpool goalkeeper Shamal George.

      The 21-year-old suffered facial injuries in the attack which took place in a city centre bar at around 1am on Saturday. The brother of the young goalkeeper, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Tranmere, was also injured in the incident.

      Police are studying CCTV footage of the attack and Liverpool are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

      A club spokesperson said: “Liverpool Football Club is shocked and appalled that Shamal and a family member have been subjected to such a terrible ordeal. As a club, we will offer Shamal and his family any support that they require.


      “The matter is now in the hands of Merseyside Police and we will defer all enquiries to them. We would also urge anyone with information about the incident to come forward.

      “Liverpool Football Club will make no further comment until it is appropriate to do so and, in the meantime, we would ask that Shamal and his family have their privacy respected.”

      Absolute scum of the earth whoever did that.

      Hopefully Shamal wasn't badly hurt.

      Terrible headline to see. Society in the UK has a long long way to go and it's despicable that it's people like Shamal who are bearing the brunt of that fact while others ignore it and/or at worst deny, it is taking place.

      Nasty by the sound of it. Don't know the details but hope the lad isn't injured to badly.

      Couple of bad incidents with idiots running on the pitch.Jack Grealish assaulted.

      It's a broader point but to suggest that the reduction of the number of frontline police hasn't been s factor in the rise of knife crime etc is downright ludicrous
