Liverpool make complaint over alleged Rhian Brewster racial abuse - source

Chris Hughton bemoans Brighton's level of play against Liverpool, stressing the need for the Seagulls to learn from their defeat.

LIVERPOOL -- Liverpool have told UEFA that they believe Rhian Brewster was subject to racial abuse from a Spartak Moscow player, a source has told ESPN FC.

The alleged incident happened during Liverpool's UEFA Youth League match with the Russian side at Prenton Park on Wednesday afternoon.

Brewster, 17, needed to be restrained by teammates and Liverpool staff at the end of the 2-0 win, with the Merseyside club then reporting the alleged incident to UEFA.

A UEFA spokesperson told ESPN FC that they "will be waiting to receive the official match reports" and should be able to provide "official information" in the coming days.

Asked about the incident, Liverpool under-19s coach Steven Gerrard said: "It's difficult for me to comment on it right now. It's something that the club will look into and deal with.

"I'd rather talk about Rhian Brewster's performance. I don't want to take any gloss off that because he was superb. The only thing that was missing from his performance was a goal."

In September, Spartak were charged by UEFA for racist behaviour from their supporters towards Liverpool youngster Bobby Adekanye during a UEFA Youth League fixture, which took place at the Russian club's academy on Sept. 26. 

UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body subsequently hit Spartak with a partial stadium closure as punishment.
