Police have launched an investigation following claims a Ross County player was racially abused online after his team’s draw with Rangers.

Regan Charles-Cook scored for the Highland side during the 3-3 cinch Premiership clash in Dingwall on Saturday.

He is now the leading goalscorer in the league.

Post-match, the 24-year-old posted on Twitter: “I am extremely hurt and frustrated to come off the pitch today and be left multiple messages of racist abuse.

“This makes us stronger and we will continue to fight against racism!”

A Police Scotland spokesperson said the force is “aware of the matter and looking into it”.

In a statement, Ross County added: “ We will give Regan all of our support and will work with the police and relevant parties to ensure these messages are properly dealt with.”
