Reading striker Jason Roberts, who last year decided not to wear a Kick It Out anti-racism t-shirt until more had been done on racism in football, has tweeted:
Congratulations to AC Milan players and Kevin Prince Boateng for walking of the Pitch due to Racist abuse...
Until the authorities take appropriate action and start taking this issue seriously, this battle will have to be fought by the players..
