Gerrard Scanlon, a 53-year-old from Enfield, north London, was arrested by Metropolitan Police on Tuesday evening.

He has been bailed to appear at Bromley Magistrates Court at 10:00 GMT on 27th February.

In a statement on their official website, Millwall said that Scanlon was not a season ticket holder or supporters club member at the club.

The development comes two days 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 on 18 November.

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

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
