Marcus Rashford has sent a message of support to Tammy Abraham after the Chelsea striker was targeted with racist abuse following his penalty miss against Liverpool in the Super Cup.

Chelsea and Liverpool were forced to settle the Super Cup with a shootout after it ended 2-2 after 120 minutes in Istanbul on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool scored all five of their penalties before Abraham had his effort saved by Adrian.

Abraham was subjected to a series of abusive posts on social media after the match, while Chelsea have condemned those responsible for the messages.

‘We are disgusted with the abhorrent posts we have seen on social media,’ said a club spokesman.

‘Chelsea FC finds all forms of discriminatory behaviour unacceptable.

‘It has no place at this club and where there is clear evidence of Chelsea season ticket holders or members involved in such behaviour, we will take the strongest possible action against them.’
