BRADFORD CITY are investigating claims made by Rotherham United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris that he was racially abused after Saturday’s League One derby at Valley Parade.

Clarke-Harris, an 80th-minute substitute for the Millers, claimed that he was abused by a supporter as he was warming down shortly after the game ended.

He reported the incident to the club, who have been studying CCTV footage and working with the police to identify the supporter.

Clarke-Harris tweeted: “To that one Bradford fan doing monkey chants at me as I was doing my runs at the end off the game, you should be disappointed in yourself.”

A statement from the Millers read: “Rotherham United have been made aware of an allegation of racial abuse towards one of our players from a home area of the ground after the game against Bradford City at the weekend.

“Like ourselves, our friends at Bradford City do not tolerate any form of discrimination, and as such we have been informed that the allegation has been passed onto the Police and is now under investigation.

“Rotherham United operate a zero tolerance policy on discrimination of any kind, and will fully assist in any way with any ongoing investigation into the incident.”
