Swedish champions AIK say they will extend their investigation into allegations of racism suffered by Celtic pair Odsonne Edouard and Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo.
The Hoops players are alleged to have been subjected to racial abuse late on in the 4-1 win in Stockholm last Thursday.
Things have been pretty quiet since the allegations but now AIK stadium safety officer Jens Andersson has given an update. (Scottish Sun)
“We have done a full internal investigation as to what has or has not happened in relation to this incident,” Andersson said.
“There are still people we want to interview who have been away, so we are extending it.
“When we conclude this investigation, the club will act accordingly.
“But we wish to make it very clear AIK will not stand for any form of racism.”
AIK must get to the bottom of racism allegations
It’s a real shame that racism is still prevalent in many parts of Europe in 2019. In the past week, Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku was subjected to monkey chants during Inter Milan’s game against Cagliari.
Thankfully, incidents of racism in Scotland are rare and isolated. Fans can be accused of many things in this country but, in the main, racism is not one.
Hopefully AIK get to the bottom of what happened at the Friends Arena during the Europa League tie and UEFA step in if necessary.
