Town and Bolton Wanderers have both issued statements in relation to a video circulating on social media filmed at this afternoon’s game in which “discriminatory and hateful” comments are made regarding Trotters goalscorer Dapo Afolayan.
A statement from Town reads: “The club is aware of a video on social media that appears to have been filmed during today’s fixture with Bolton Wanderers at Portman Road.
“We are conducting a thorough investigation into the matter, and we have made the relevant authorities aware, including the police.
“Ipswich Town Football Club does not tolerate discrimination of any kind and will not hesitate to take strong, but appropriate, action.
“We encourage supporters to report any such behaviour by speaking to their nearest steward or through the Kick It Out app. We will not be commenting more at this time.”
