Liverpool will make an official complaint to UEFA after Rhian Brewster was allegedly racially abused on Wednesday.

The incident happened during the Reds’ UEFA Youth League clash with Spartak Moscow, with Brewster clearly enraged by the event.

The Liverpool Echo report claims that the “incensed England Under-17s striker had to be dragged away by Reds team-mates and staff following the final whistle at Prenton Park.”

Brewster toldĀ referee Mohammed Al-Hakim of the alleged abuse – which happened towards the end of the game – and also informed the fourth official.

Liverpool boss Steven Gerrard was probed on the incident, but refused to shed much light on what was said.

“It’s difficult for me to comment on it right now. It’s something that the club will look into and deal with.

“I’d rather talk about Rhian Brewster’s performance. I don’t want to take any gloss off that because he was superb. The only thing that was missing from his performance was a goal. He held the ball up so well and put in a shift for us.”
