An investigation has been launched by Clyde Football Club after Cove Rangers defender Shay Logan claimed he had been the victim of racist abuse at Broadwood.

On social media, Logan listed four abusive comments alleged to have been aimed at him during Cove’s 1-0 cinch League One victory, with one of them racist.

Writing on his Twitter account, the former Aberdeen full-back headed his post with laughing emojis and added: “When you upset Clyde fans because your mum chose a black man.”

The 33-year-old added the hashtags “#Kickitout” and “#BlackandProud”.
