Sam Allardyce refused to shed light on the Mason Holgate and Roberto Firmino incident

Holgate, accompanied by manager Sam Allardyce and director of football Steve Walsh, went to see Madley after Friday's FA Cup tie at Anfield and claimed he had heard Firmino use the word 'negro' following a heated exchange between the pair after 41 minutes.Holgate's initial push on Firmino sent the Liverpool forward over the advertising hoardings and after he scrambled to his feet, the furious Brazilian sprinted over to Holgate.

Liverpool have given their full support to teenager Rhian Brewster over his allegations of racism while playing for club and country and have full faith in the FA's process over Firmino.

"Nice one, a fairy tale in a world with not a lot of fairy tales any more, so I think something like that is quite special", said the German.

The alleged incident led to the Everton defender losing his cool on the pitch. I only want to talk about football.

No action was taken by Madley at that point in time, but he did pass a message on to the fourth official and the suggestion of racist abuse was flagged by the official to the FA.

"I vehemently deny the accusation that I made racist comments to Stan Collymore during or after the game at Aston Villa on Saturday".

Referee Bobby Madley will report the incident to the FA in his match report and an investigation will follow.

After the match, Liverpool fans shared screenshots of tweets apparently sent by Holgate between 2012 and 2013.

"Anything else outside of that that happens has to be dealt with by the authorities".

Klopp then said: "I had information that something happened. but I can't say anything about it". "It was a fantastic night", said the 26-year-old.

That is according to pundit and former Reds star Stan Collymore. Neither player was booked for the incident.

"I didn't understand the whole situation after the game".

Van Dijk impressed in his defensive work before grabbing the winner and Klopp was pleased with everything he saw.

And two years ago Coventry's Chris Stokes was also banned after making homophobic posts on Twitter, using the word "faggot".
