WARRINGTON Town striker Shaun Tuck has been charged over ‘racist’ comments put on Facebook.

The 27-year-old, signed earlier this year, was arrested following remarks posted on the social media page at the end of March.

Tuck, from Norris Green, Liverpool, was arrested by police on suspicion of a racially aggravated section 4 public order offence.

A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: "Shaun Tuck, 27, of Norris Green , has been charged with an offence under Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003.

"Tuck is to appear at Liverpool Magistrates' Court on Monday, June 2."

He was handed a ban from playing football until the end of this year by the FA as punishment for a separate matter last month.
