Racism claims in Liverpool clash (5 Mar)

Stan Collymore has claimed that Liverpool defender John Harkness hurled racist abuse at him in Villa's 2-1 win at Villa Park. 

Liverpool boss Roy Evans is furious and announced that if the allegations are true, Harkness will be in serious strife. 

The F.A have also said they will act, whether Collymore continues his story or not, and warned they have the authority to give many punishments including fines and suspension. 

Harkness refused to comment and an investigation is now underway.
