Hibernian have launched an investigation after a supporter was heard allegedly aiming racist abuse at Hearts forward Uche Ikpeazu in Sunday’s Edinburgh derby.

The club have confirmed that they are aware of the YouTube fan vlog video, in which a spectator can be heard calling Ikpeazu a ‘monkey’.

Hibs say the video has been passed on to the club’s security team and they will begin the process of identifying the supporter responsible.
