The abuse of Emmanuel Adebayor in Tottenham's Champions League defeat at Real Madrid had "racial undertones", says anti-racism group Kick It Out.
Spurs fiercely denied offensive chants aimed at the striker were racist.
But Kick It Out chairman Lord Ouseley said the words "Your dad washes elephants," were a slight on his African heritage.
"It's not racist but it is abusive and it has racial undertones to it," Lord Ouseley told BBC Radio 5 live.
Oh Dear. Not a very good thing to be hearing, at all. Yes, Adebayor was an Arsenal player though that shouldn't allow him to be the subject of such vitriol.
