Marvin Sordell: Claims four Bolton players were racially abused by Millwall fans
Millwall are to work with police as they investigate claims that four Bolton players were subjected to racist abuse.
Marvin Sordell took to Twitter in the wake of a 2-1 defeat for the Trotters to report that he had been taunted by fans as he warmed up as a substitute.
He also alleged that three other Bolton players were targeted.
Scotland Yard say no official complaint has been made, but insist any allegations will be investigated.
A spokesman said: "There has been no complaint made to us, but if any allegation of racist behaviour or chanting is made it will be investigated thoroughly."
Both Millwall and Bolton Wanderers are investigating the claims.
Millwall's statement said: "The two clubs remain determined to do everything in their power to ensure that racist behaviour will not be tolerated.
"We will be speaking to the police and the match officials on this matter but no further comment will be made until this process has been completed and the investigations have been concluded."
Bolton said it was working with Millwall in the inquiry, and added: "Both clubs remain determined that racist behaviour or language will not be tolerated."
Sordell, who also plays for England U21s, said on the social networking site: "It's 2012 in England and people are still shouting racial abuse at a football game!? #shocking."
In another entry, he claimed Lee Chung-yong, Darren Pratley and Benik Afobe also suffered abuse.
He said: "Chungy, Pratts, Benik and I had all sorts of things said to us. The police were standing yards away and did nothing."
