Shakhtar said Taison had burst into tears after the alleged abuse

Brazilian midfielder Taison was sent off after reacting to the alleged racist abuse in the 1-0 home win by Shakhtar Donetsk against Dynamo Kyiv.

The 31-year-old Taison made a gesture to the Dynamo fans and kicked them before the referee took the players off in 77 minutes.

When they returned five minutes later, Taison was shown a red card.

Shakhtar said that both Taison and Brazilian compatriot Dentinho were targeted and the Dynamo fans were warned twice.
