Chuks Aneke has played for MK Dons since 2016, scoring 29 goals in 80 league appearances

Milton Keynes Dons say they are “appalled” after their forward Chuks Aneke was allegedly the subject of a racist social media post on Sunday.

A meme on Instagram appeared to compare Aneke to a monkey, and was allegedly uploaded by a fan of Tranmere Rovers, who beat the Dons 2-1 on Saturday.

Tranmere say they have referred the post to the police, and vowed to impose bans if any of their fans are involved.

MK Dons described the abuse as “totally disgusting and unacceptable”.
