Gareth Southgate Speak Out On Racist Abuse From Montenegro Fans

But after the match, Southgate said he wasn't happy with some of the remarks coming from the opponent's fans.

Speaking to ITV, he said: "I definitely heard abuse at Danny Rose when he got booked at the end of the game...We'll make sure that's reported officially. It's not acceptable."

He didn't know if other players were subjected to racist remarks.

The Independent reports racist chants could be heard in the stadium throughout the match. Raheem Sterling was pictured cupping his hands towards the vocal audience after England scored a goal.

Asked whether Sterling also heard abuse, Southgate was unclear, saying: "I'm not sure yet. I had a quick chat with Danny because I heard what happened there. I've not had chance to speak with Raheem yet.

"Whatever happens we'll report it."

England player Callum Hudson-Odoi told BeIN Sports that he specifically heard monkey chants coming from the fans.
