Manchester United's Rashford Sends Message To Abraham After Penalty Miss, Racist Abuse
Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has sent a message of support to Tammy Abraham in the wake of Chelsea's loss to Liverpool in Wednesday evening's UEFA Super Cup.

The English-born striker of Nigerian descent was subjected to racist abuse by fans after he missed the decisive spot kick in the Super Cup held in Istanbul.

Abraham, who had won a penalty in the first half of extra-time, opted to take the fifth kick in the shootout but saw his effort saved by the legs of Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian.

Sky Sports Premier League tweeted : ''The online racist abuse of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham after the Super Cup against Liverpool has been called "disgusting" and "increasingly predictable" by Kick It Out''.

Rashford commented and retweeted the post from Sky Sports : ''Keep your head held high @tammyabraham we’ve all had them saved, that’s football  We should be celebrating young English talent not this...''

Chelsea have released a statement expressing their disappointment with the fans and vowed to take the strongest possible action against them, where there is clear evidence of Chelsea season ticket holders or members involved in such behaviour.
