Russian club CSKA Moscow have denied that their fans racially abused Toure.

The Russian club's deputy media manager Michael Sanadze told Sky Sports News: "There is no subject to discuss. Nothing special happened.

"There was a lot of noise in the stadium. Nobody else, other than Yaya Toure, heard anything.

The only trouble that has come about was because Yaya Toure heard something."
