Man charged over 'racist abuse' of Ross County player

A man has been arrested and charged for allegedly racially abusing Ross County midfielder Yan Dhanda.

The incident reportedly took place in the first half of the club's 2-1 victory against Hibs on Saturday.

Both clubs have released statements condemning the incident.

Dhanda, who will join Hearts this summer, reported the alleged remarks to referee Don Robertson.

Police Scotland confirmed a 27-year-old has been arrested and charged over the incident.

Ross County released a statement on X, formerly Twitter, saying there was "no place" for racist abuse "in our game or society as a whole".

Hibs published a statement on their official website which said: "The club condemns any form of racist or discriminatory behaviour towards any player, official, staff member or supporter.

"It is completely unacceptable and has no place in the game or wider society.

"The club will take the strongest possible action against anyone identified in making discriminatory and hateful comments."

Ross County's victory moved them out of the relegation play off place with three games of the season left.
