Kevin Kilbane complains over West Ham chant


2015.02.24 04:06

 Kevin Kilbane has made a complaint to the Football Association over an alleged chant by West Ham fans mocking disabled people.

The ex-Republic of Ireland winger has received abusive messages on social media since his complaint was revealed.
Hammers fans sang the chant during the 2-2 draw at Tottenham on Sunday.
Kilbane was not at the game but was told of the language by a close friend and says he spoke to the FA, which is investigating the complaint.
The word used in the chant is a derogatory one against people with Downs Syndrome.
BBC football pundit Kilbanes daughter, Elsie, has the condition, and the former Preston, West Brom, Sunderland, Everton, Wigan, Hull City and Coventry City player is a patron of the Downs Syndrome Association charity. 
In another incident involving Sundays game, video footage has emerged of a group of men, thought to be West Ham fans, chanting anti-Semitic abuse on a train in north London.
Anti-discrimination group Kick It Out has contacted police over the footage on the way to the game at White Hart Lane.
