Derby County Invite Charlie To Dressing Room Ahead Of Match In Class Gesture

Derby County invited Charlie to their dressing room ahead of playing Bristol City in a class gesture.

A video of Charlie, 23, went viral after he was cruelly abused by a Nottingham Forest fan, who told him he was wearing the wrong kit in a vile stunt.

Nottingham Forest condemned the video with a police investigation underway.

"We're aware of a video circulating on social media and we're working together with Nottingham Forest Football Club to investigate the incident," a statement from Nottinghamshire Police reads.

"We are treating the incident as a hate crime. We're appealing for anyone who knows who made the video to get in contact with us. We'd also like to appeal directly to the person responsible for making the video to get in touch with us so they can explain their actions.

"We're also keen to speak to anyone who knows the victim. Please call us on 101, quoting incident number 408 of 17 December 2018."

Derby have since produced an incredible gesture in the shape of inviting him to their dressing room, today.

'The Rams' host Bristol City in the Championship with the lad among the team prior to kick-off in great scenes.

Curtis Davies uploaded a picture of Derby's players and staff alongside Charlie on social media, accompanied with the words:

"Good to have Charlie in the changing room ahead of today's game!"

Everyone is a big fan of Derby's heart-warming actions.

Fair play, Derby. Well done. Enjoy the game, Charlie.
