Cisse hits out at racist remarks

QPR striker Djibril Cisse has reacted angrily after apparently being subjected to racist abuse on Twitter.

Cisse, who joined the west Londoners from Italian side Lazio this week, retweeted two messages seemingly from supporters of the Rome club before turning on his tormentors.

A Twitter user initially targeted the former Liverpool forward with a message saying: "Die n***** b****** Lazio fans hate you!!!!"

Another user then added: "djibril is a big monkey."

The France international, who scored in his new team's 2-2 draw with Aston Villa on Wednesday evening, responded in a series of Tweets.

"Wow u are an idiot man insulting me like this coz I left lazio wow u are a real idiot,'' he responded to the first user.

After the second message was posted Cisse added: "Wow is it the idiot parade today.

"I retweeted them just to show how some people are f****** stupids just because I left a club I'm a f****** n***** who deserve to die or a big monkey?wow I'm really shocked u 2 guys are f****** brainless and u should be f****** ashamed."

The incident is the latest in a number of recent racial flashpoints, with Liverpool striker Luis Suarez currently serving a suspension for comments made to Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra and England captain John Terry standing accused of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, allegations he denies.
