Manchester United and England striker Marcus Rashford has told Tammy Abraham to "keep his head held high" after his penalty miss in the UEFA Super Cup against Liverpool.

And Rashford has taken to social media to speak out in support of Abraham, while giving his view on the alleged racist abuse online.

In a statement, Kick It Out said: "Last night we received reports of racist abuse directed at Tammy Abraham on social media after Chelsea's UEFA Super Cup match.

Since the game, Abraham has allegedly been subjected to racist abuse on social media, with a statement from equality and inclusion organisation Kick It Out describing the reports as "disgusting and increasingly predictable."

The Chelsea striker's penalty was saved in the shootout in Istanbul as Liverpool won 5-4 on penalties in the Super Cup clash, after the game finished 2-2 after extra time.

Abraham took the fifth penalty for Chelsea in the shootout, but saw his effort saved by Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian, who made the save with his feet to deny the Blues' striker, and clinch victory for the Reds.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have condemned "abhorrent posts" aimed at Abraham since the game.
