Liverpool have hit out at the 'abhorrent' racist abuse directed at Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita and Sadio Mane following the Reds' Champions League defeat by Real Madrid.

Liverpool have responded to the disgusting abuse sent to their players, labelling the responses 'abhorrent', before calling on social media platforms to do more to tighten regulations.

'Once again we are sadly discussing abhorrent racial abuse the morning after a football game,' the statement read. 'It is utterly unacceptable and it has to stop'.

According to Sky Sports News, Facebook, which owns Instagram, is investigating the issue as pressure piles on social media platforms to combat vile abuse sent to sports stars.

Liverpool supporter group The Anfield Watch shared screenshots of the 'disgraceful' abuse sent Keita's way, and Fabinho's wife Rebeca Tavares commented: 'WE STAND AGAINST RACISM'.

Manchester United midfielder Fred received vile racist abuse following the FA Cup quarter-final exit to Leicester last week, in which the Brazilian made an error leading to Kelechi Iheanacho's opener.

On Wednesday, Brentford backed star striker Ivan Toney after the Championship's leading goalscorer was targeted following the Bees' 0-0 draw with Birmingham City.Toney posted a screenshot of an offensive post sent to him by Instagram user 'alexw1422' which included banana and monkey emojis.
