Liverpool has confirmed that lifetime bans will be handed out to any fans identified as racially abusing Tom Adeyemi during the club’s 5-1 trashing of Oldham at Anfield on Friday night. The Latics midfielder was left visibly shaken after abuse was hurled his way from a small section of fans in the Kop end. The matter of race had been amplified over recent weeks when Reds striker Luis Suarez was handed an 8 match ban after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra. While the Liverpool hierarchy finds Suarez’s sentence highly suspect, they are pulling no punches when it comes to their own fans. The Red Devils will make an quick return to Anfield during the 4th round of the FA Cup and with this matter likely to be fresh in the minds of the media. The News Desk is waiting, patiently of course, for some more drivel vilifying the millions of Liverpool fans based on the actions of a small minority.
