Bolton striker El-Hadji Diouf is the subject of a police investigation following allegations that he spat at Middlesbrough supporters last week.
As a result, Diouf could face a similar charge to the one which saw him fined 5,000 at Glasgow Sheriff Court in September last year after pleading
guilty to assault under provocation for spitting at Celtic fans in a UEFA Cup tie.
Cleveland police launched an investigation after an 11-year-old Boro fan complained that the Senegal striker - on loan from Liverpool - spat a
mouthful of juice at him during the 1-1 draw at the Riverside.
