DISGRACE!! Brentford Striker Ivan Toney Suffers Racist Abuse

Brentford say they are “disgusted and saddened” by “abusive, racist messages” sent to striker Ivan Toney following Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

The club said the 26-year-old, who scored an equaliser at Emirates Stadium, received a barrage of direct messages to his Instagram account.

In January, a man admitted a charge of sending an offensive message and apologised in court to Toney.

“How many times does this need to happen?” a Brentford statement read.

“We are disgusted and saddened that Ivan has had to deal with this yet again.

“We will not tolerate it and we will do everything we can to pursue the individuals involved.”

In a statement, Arsenal said:

“We stand with Ivan Toney and are working with Brentford to identify those who sent racist abuse.

“At Arsenal we condemn all forms of discrimination and take a zero-tolerance approach. We will apply the strongest possible action to anyone we can identify sending hateful messages.”
