Sky Sports News conducted a three-month investigation into racism in football

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.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
