A 59-year-old man has been arrested after a picture was posted on Twitter showing him making racist monkey gestures during the FA Cup Manchester United verses Liverpool game yesterday.
Tensions were high as the two clubs were meeting for the first time since Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was given an eight-match ban for racially abusing Man U defender Patrick Evra.
Every time Evra had possession of the ball Liverpool fans booed him and Suarez could be seen watching from the stands cheering his team on alongside his wife and child.
Liverpool went on to win the game 2-1.
I saw this last night laughed and then just shook my head – UNBELIEVABLE. It’s the 1970s / early 1980s all over again. Football fans are taking it back to the old skool.
A victim of racism is booed throughout the entire match and a 59 years old FOOL who seems to have forgotten that the team he supports has black players is caught making monkey gestures in the crowd. This really isn’t a good look Liverpool.
UPDATE: The 59-year-old man has now been released on bail.

Football is like a religion for some, you don’t mess it up for them. Since he is 59, he must be stuck in the 70’s.
I haven’t heard any reaction from Alex Ferguson. Am i living under a rock or something? No back up whatsoever?
I keep telling people, the race riots are coming. Prepare yourselves for the battle.
Nothing changes, nor does this surprise me, we must not think for one moment that this 59 year old buffoon just behaved like this on the spur of the moment. This is the thought of many white folks and we ain’t seen or heard anything yet
Interesting article, the man should be ashamed of himself!!
wow! This only shows you that most people will never change. He thought it to be ok to act like this in front of all those people. No reply from the football star…why not? What are so many afraid of.. They are just as much apart of the problem when you don’t speak up… SMH…. But i do expect this from so many Blacks…too afraid of taking a stand… Don’t want to piss whitey off….sad…sad…sad. But this fool…needs to be put in a cave with a lot of monkeys….and see how he likes it….
