A RACIST Albion fan admitted abuse while watching a match at the Amex stadium.

George Reynolds had attended the Seagulls’ home game against Spurs when he made comments.

The 24-year-old was ejected from the stadium by stewards, and was then arrested.

Reynolds racially abused Tottenham Hotspur players, including Son Heung Min, and towards black players.

He said the South Korean international "will eat your dog", and called black players "monkey boys".

But other Albion fans at the match in October reported him to stewards.

Reynolds admitted using racially aggravated harassment likely to cause alarm or distress with intent when he appeared at Brighton Magistrates’ Court last month.

Today, he was brought before Judge Mark Van Der Zwart at Lewes Crown Court for sentence.

The Judge revealed it was not the first offence that Reynolds had committed that was racially aggravated.

Reynolds told the court he has been dismissed from his job, but has not yet had a response to his application for legal aid.

The judge said he would adjourn the case again, but warned him the offence was “extremely serious” and could face a prison term of up to two years.

Reynolds, of Shipley Road, Brighton, was told he must not attend the Amex Stadium and will face a banning order.

Judge Van Der Zwart said he would adjourn the case until January 31, to allow him to get legal representation.

At the time of the incident in October, Brighton and Hove Albion chief executive and deputy chairman Paul Barber said: “It’s very hard to comprehend why some individuals think it’s acceptable to behave in this way.

“But we are very clear that neither Brighton & Hove Albion, nor the wider football community, will tolerate racism or discrimination at any time, in any form.

“It is very encouraging that in both incidents our stewards were alerted to this totally unacceptable behaviour by other Albion fans.

“Working with Sussex Police, our staff were able to take swift action, which hopefully will increase the chances of a conviction.

“We do not want people exhibiting any kind of discriminatory or anti-social behaviour inside our stadium, and I would like to thank those Albion fans for reporting the incidents to us as soon as they heard it.

“We would urge any fans confronted with similar discriminatory behaviour to report it immediately, either directly to a steward or via our anonymous hotline, and we will take strong action.”
