Killie have vowed to ban anyone found guilty of discriminatory insults.

A club spokesman said: “The club is aware of an incident of alleged racism against Alfredo Morelos and will investigate this matter fully.

“Kilmarnock Football Club wholeheartedly condemns any form of racism and anyone found to be involved in incidents of this nature will be immediately banned from Rugby Park.

“If anyone has any information then we would encourage them to come forward.”
