Northumbria Police Let City 'Nutter' Off The Hook

Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov will not face any action from Northumbria police following an incident when he used racist remarks to a Newcastle fan.
Had it been the OTHER way around, I'm sure some Newcastle fan would have had his season ticket removed and get a three year ban from St James' Park!
So where is the justice?
Kolarov will not face any action following an incident during his side's 3-1 win at Newcastle United on December 15.
Northumbria Police received a complaint in the wake of City's game at St James' Park after Serbia international Kolarov allegedly became involved in a dispute with a Newcastle supporter bearing the national flag of Albania.
A spokesman at the time said: "Northumbria Police has received a report of racist language having been used at the St James' Park stadium during the Newcastle United v Manchester City match today.
"Northumbria Police takes such allegations extremely seriously and enquiries are ongoing into the incident."
Police have subsequently investigated the issue and deemed that no action will be taken.
So is there a connection between Albania and St James' Park?
Well ... (we're struggling here) the late Norman Wisdom (a life-long Toon fan) was a LEGEND in Albania.
