FAI probe Elding racism claim

Published 03/04/2013 | 05:00

THE FAI Disciplinary Control Unit have invited UCD and Sligo Rovers to provide more information after allegations that a racist comment was made towards Bit O'Red striker Anthony Elding in the Airtricity League meeting between the sides on Monday night.

Elding was fuming at the final whistle and his team-mate Danny Ventre later suggested on Twitter that the Englishman's performance had been affected by an "unacceptable" incident.

Referee Dave McKeon was informed of the player's complaint and mentioned it in his report to the league authorities. The match delegate was also made aware of the alleged incident.

Both UCD and Sligo have declined to comment on the matter, while the FAI's disciplinary wing are awaiting further clarity before deciding if they need to take action.

Elding joined Sligo this winter and scored in each of their opening five games before firing a blank against struggling UCD.
