Metropolitan Police confirmed that a 53-year-old from Enfield was arrested for a racially aggravated public order offence and remains in police custody.

The development comes the day after Sky Sports News broadcast a Special Report on racism in football that appeared to show striker El Hadji Diouf being abused at The Den during a game in November.

Both the Metropolitan Police and the Football Association requested a copy of Monday's programme to conduct their own investigations.

Millwall released a statement after the broadcast to say they were "appalled" by the footage.

The Championship club has promised to ban any individuals for life if they are found guilty.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
