Raith Rovers FC have received notification from Ayr United that the match referees attention was drawn to offensive remarks of a racial nature made during the game from the Railway End of Somerset Park (where the travelling support were housed last Saturday) to Ayr player Declan McDaid.
Raith Rovers FC condemn in the strongest possible terms any form of abuse of a racist nature, are committed to investigating this incident thoroughly, and identifying the person or persons responsible.
As well as being wholly unacceptable, this behaviour is in direct contravention of Raith Rovers Football Club’s own Supporters Code of Conduct, as outlined at: http://www.raithrovers.net/files/Code_Of_Conduct.pdf
Consequently, we have been conducting a rigorous investigation to identify the person or persons responsible. Any information that can assist in this can be sent in confidence to the Raith Rovers Safety Officer: safetyraithrovers.net
At this crucial point in the league campaign the squad need all supporters energies focussed on the remaining fixtures, starting tonight at Forfar and continuing through East Fife at Starks Park on Sunday and onwards to the end of the season.
Lets get right behind the Rovers!
