Rashford Suffers Racist Abuse on Twitter

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford was subjected to racist abuse on social media moments after missing a penalty during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace.

The past two weeks have seen Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham, United midfielder Paul Pogba and Reading’s Yakou Meite all racially abused on Twitter after failing to score from the spot.

With United trailing 1-0 on Saturday afternoon with half an hour to go, Rashford stepped up to take the spot-kick but watched in horror as the ball bounced back off the left post.

Racists messages were posted soon afterwards on Twitter aimed at the England forward.

Pogba was targeted after missing a penalty in United’s Premier League 1-1 draw with Wolves on Monday.
