A video showing a group, believed to be Chelsea fans, singing a racist song has been condemned by equality and inclusion organisation Kick It Out.

The video, which has been widely shared on social media, showed the group singing "Salah is a bomber" apparently in reference to Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

"It's not on the terraces, but it's still a disgrace. We don't want fans like that anywhere near our game," Kick It Out tweeted.

"We will be liaising with @ChelseaFC to ensure those involved are identified and punished swiftly and effectively. #KickItOut"

Chelsea declined to comment on the basis that it has not been established that these are Chelsea fans.

The Blues' first-leg quarter-final Europa League tie against Slavia Prague takes place in the Czech Republic.

Liverpool also released a statement on their website, which read: "The video circulating online, showing vile discriminatory chants being aimed at one of our players, is dangerous and disturbing.

"Already this season, we have seen repulsive discriminatory abuse inside stadiums in England, Europe and across the world; abuse that was captured on devices and put into the public domain. We have also witnessed numerous hateful attacks on social media.

"This behaviour needs to be called out for what it is - unadulterated bigotry."
