Liverpool say racist abuse on social media "cannot be allowed to continue" after Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita and Sadio Mane were targeted.

On Tuesday, Brentford striker Ivan Toney also received racist abuse on Instagram.

A Facebook spokesperson called the abuse "abhorrent", adding: "We do not want it on Instagram and we swiftly removed a number of comments and accounts that broke our rules.

The UK government has previously which could amount to "billions of pounds" if they fail to tackle abuse on their platforms.

In an interview with BBC's Newsnight programme, the 43-year-old said "enough was enough" and that he had to make a stand against racism on social media.

The Premier League club said they will work with relevant authorities to try to identify and prosecute offenders.

"We recently announced tougher measures to tackle this behaviour and we are committed to doing everything we can to fight hate and racism on our platforms."
