“Albion will continue to confront all forms of discrimination and will assist the authorities with their inquiries, seeking the toughest available legal punishment.
“It is deeply disturbing that scoring two goals in a football match can provoke a reaction of this kind.
“There is no room for racism. Anywhere.”
