MILLWALL are "considering potential courses of action" after The Daily Mail reported that Leeds United's El-Hadji Diouf had been racially abused at The Den.
The newspaper's website claimed that the Lions' 1-0 win on Sunday had been "marred by monkey chants from sections of home crowd" – but the winger heard nothing untoward from the terraces.
Chief executive Andy Ambler confirmed: "This kind of journalism is extremely frustrating. We are considering what action we can take."
Millwall have received an apology from the Daily Mail after the article was removed, but added in a satement: "This article was based solely on Twitter posts.
"El-Hadji Diouf has spoken to representatives of Millwall and confirmed that he did not receive any racial abuse and had no complaint to make.
"The club has spoken to the MailOnline in the strongest possible terms requesting that the article be removed, which it now has been.
"Millwall are considering potential further courses of action following this damaging accusation."
