Dundee United have confirmed the club has ended an investigation into allegations of racist abuse aimed at Dundee striker Kane Hemmings.
The investigation was launched by United and Police Scotland after a video surfaced of a supporter allegedly directing abuse at Hemmings during December’s derby.
The video appears to show a man in the West Stand hurling abuse at the player.
The clip was originally recorded by a local vlogger known as @1885Ben, before going viral.
The abuse shocked many online, with viewers labelling the clip “disgusting”, “absolutely shocking” and a “disgrace”.
The investigation has now been dropped by both Police Scotland and United after they failed to find the alleged abuser on CCTV.
A Tannadice spokesman said: “Further to an alleged incident of racial abuse at our home fixture versus Dundee on December 27, the club reviewed CCTV footage and images and discussed the matter with Police Scotland.
“The club found no evidence to corroborate or contradict the allegation and as such is not in a position to take any further action.
“Should any new information be brought to the club’s attention, this will be fully investigated.”
A spokesman for Show Racism the Red Card said: “Dundee United have been incredibly proactive in tackling discrimination and have been hugely supportive in raising awareness of our charity’s work.
“We believe that education is the key to eradicating racism from the game and from society.”
