Millwall determined to continue racism fight

Millwall Football Club understands Gerrard Scanlon, the man caught in the recent Sky Sports News documentary uttering racist abuse at a Leeds United player, appeared at Bromley Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning.
He received a £400 fine with £125 costs and was issued with a five year football banning order.
But the club had already decided to ban Scanlon for life from all matches at The Den.
We are pleased that the behaviour of this individual came to notice, and that the police and the courts have now taken action against him.
Millwall Football Club will continue to operate a zero tolerance policy to target and ban any fan guilty of displaying racist behaviour, and we look forward to developing even closer links with other agencies, including those in the media who share our determination to eradicate racism from our game.
