CHARLTON star Lyle Taylor is set to report a Bradford City fan to police after he was racially abused on Twitter.

The striker has identified four tweets he received today which he says are “’another example of ignorant, small minded racism”.

Taylor, 29, flagged the messages from an account called @BantamRealTalk that consisted of the banana emoji.

The racial slurs were sent after Bradford’s 1-0 defeat to Charlton at The Valley yesterday in League One.

Taylor edged the Bantams closer to relegation and strengthened the Addicks’ promotion hopes with the only goal of the game.

Now the Daily Mail claim the hotshot plans to take action by contacting the cops over the vile tweets.

It is the latest sorry incident of racism over the past few months directed at English-born footballers.

England stars Callum Hudson-Odoi, Danny Rose and Raheem Sterling were all subjected to monkey chanting aimed at them in Monday’s win in Montenegro.

Four Chelsea fans were suspended for allegedly hurling racist abuse at Sterling during a Premier League clash last year.


And Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a banana thrown towards him shortly after that incident during the North London derby win over Tottenham.

Another tweet from @BantamRealTalk also replied to one of Taylor’s saying: “And you wonder why fans come onto the pitch and attack absolute muppet.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Any allegations of racist abuse will be taken seriously and we would encourage anyone who witnesses inappropriate behaviour to report it to police.”
