Chelsea act quickly to stamp out anti-semitism at Stamford Bridge

Last updated at 10:29 27 March 2008

Chelsea have underlined their commitment to stamping out anti-semitism following allegations made by a Jewish supporter against fellow Blues fans.

The season ticket-holder, who asked not to be named, claims he was singled out for racist abuse by a group of around 50 fans during the home match with Derby.

The incident was sparked by the supporter objecting to shouts of "Grant, you Jewish bastard!" directed at Chelsea's manager.

The supporter said: "I was then subjected to anti-Jewish chants before a large section of the stand began chanting about the Holocaust."

The fan reported the abuse to the police and the club, which led to Chelsea

arranging for him to meet their head of security, Ed Halls, ahead of last Sunday's Arsenal game.

But the supporter remains unhappy, telling the London Jewish News: "I'm very angry with the way the club have handled things. I want to see more being done

and feel very disillusioned right now."

Chelsea say they abhor "all forms of discrimination" and are helping police over the incident by providing CCTV pictures.

The club also printed details of an anti-discrimination hotline in last weekend's programme.
