Dundee condemn ‘vile racist messages’ aimed at Jonathan Afolabi

The striker, on-loan from Celtic, sent the message after Dundee’s Scottish Cup win over Bonnyrigg Rose. Dundee have condemned “vile racist messages” received by on-loan Celtic forward Jonathan Afolabi.

Afolabi shared a string of racist abuse messages he received from one user on his Instagram account after netting a stoppage-time equaliser during a 3-2 extra-time Scottish Cup win over Bonnyrigg Rose on Saturday night.

A Dundee statement read: “Following last night’s Scottish Cup victory over Bonnyrigg Rose we were made aware of vile racist messages that had been directed to one of our players.

“Dundee Football Club utterly condemns racism in any form.

“Racism has no place in society. We have reported these unacceptable messages and will look into what further steps can be taken.

“Sadly, this not first incident in the last seven days which has seen one of our players subjected to abuse.

“After last weekend’s match with Heart of Midlothian, another player received disgusting messages which have also been reported.

“As a club we have zero tolerance for these abusive messages and give our players our full support.”
