QPR captain Geoff Cameron has issued a statement on behalf of the squad in light of the abuse received by Bright Osayi-Samuel on social media on Tuesday evening.
“We collectively stand by our team-mate, Bright Osayi-Samuel. Through our beliefs and actions as a club, a team and individuals, we absolutely do not tolerate racism in any form. Full stop.
“What has occurred is disgusting and it is our hope that this individual is held accountable.
“We as a club have been at the forefront for fighting against racism and supporting equality for all.
“This will continue to be our stance.”
