A RACISM probe has been launched after a Barnsley Football Club supporter was accused of abusing a steward.

The Reds’ security team’s staff are working alongside Wigan Athletic, Greater Manchester Police and the EFL to identify the fan accused of racial abuse during Saturday’s 2-0 win for Neill Collins’ side.

A Barnsley FC spokesperson said: “The matter is being fully investigated and any individual found guilty of racist abuse will be immediately issued with a lifetime ban.

“They will also offered the opportunity to attend a fan education course run in conjunction with the EFL and Kick It Out.”
