Millwall issue statement warning of lifetime bans

Millwall have issued a statement warning that any supporter found guilty of discriminatory abuse will be issued with an immediate lifetime ban.

Crystal Palace midfielder Conor Gallagher was the subject of chants during today’s FA Cup third round tie, which the Premier League club won 2-1 at The Den.

“Millwall Football Club has a zero-tolerance policy against all forms of discrimination and will investigate any incident of alleged abuse accordingly,” said the Championship side. “As is club policy, any individual found guilty of discriminatory abuse is issued with an immediate lifetime ban.”

Objects were thrown on to the pitch after Jean-Philippe Mateta’s goal – and when Michael Olise went to take a corner.

“We as a football club are against any kind of discrimination,” said Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira. “Of course this is not something we want to see on the field. Taking the knee is something we are really proud to take and it is the same for any football club and player making the decision.
“What is important is to show that as a football club we are against discrimination.”

    Discrimination of any kind is abhorrent . How about finding the idiots from CPFC who let off explosive devices outside and at least 3 inside the stadium as well or is that not news worthy ?
