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.
