Liverpool have apologised to Oldham defender Tom Adeyemi, who claims he was racially abused by a Reds supporter during Friday night's FA Cup tie between the sides.
A 20-year-old man arrested on suspicion of racially abusing Adeyemi has been released on bail, police said on Sunday.
The man, from Aintree, was arrested on Saturday by Merseyside Police, who are investigating the incident, and the Premier League club have now moved to express their regret over the matter.
A statement from the club read: "Whatever the outcome of what is now a police investigation, all of us are deeply sorry for what happened on Friday night and our players and our club pass on our sincere regrets to Tom Adeyemi for the upset and distress he suffered as a result of the matter at hand."
