UEFA is waiting for match reports from the officials for Liverpool's Europa League qualifying game against FK Rabotnicki, where there were claims of racist chants from the Macedonian fans.

The English side won the match 2-0 in Macedonia with help from two goals by David Ngog.

In pictures after the game it emerged that the Rabotnicki fans appeared to be directing their "monkey taunts" at Liverpool players, such as Ngog and teenager David Amoo.

UEFA are therefore going to make a decision whether to take disciplinary action against Rabotnicki, after looking at all the evidence.

A UEFA spokesperson said, "We are aware of the matter, but we are waiting for the reports from the delegate and the referee."

Macedonian football has had problems with racism before.

In 2003, England played Macedonia away, where Emile Heskey, Ashley Cole, and Sol Campbell were subjected to racist abuse during the game.  

Their governing body was fined later fined for this incident.

Racism should not be in Football, or even in society. Kick Racism out of football .
