thumbnail Hello,

Is racism a problem in football? Join us for a debate, discussion and Q&A this afternoon as we consider recent high-profile rows and alleged abuse from the stands

The issue of racism in football has been brought to the fore in recent weeks. High-profile rows involving Liverpool's Luis Suarez, Manchester United's Patrice Evra and Chelsea's John Terry were swiftly followed by ugly scenes this weekend.

Odlham's Tom Adeyami allegedly faced racist taunts from a supporter at Anfield last week whilst Barcelona's Dani Alves was subjected to monkey chants in his side's match against Espanyol on Sunday

We will be discussing the subject in a live Twitter Q&A on Tuesday afternoon.

Goal.com's Amar Singh and Ben Hayward will be joined by Show Racism the Red Card chief executive Ged Grebby to answer your questions from 14:00 GMT.

As well as Alves and Adeyemi allegedly receiving racist taunts from supporters over the weekend, Suarez and Chelsea captain Terry have found themselves at the centre of race rows this season.

Suarez has been handed an eight-match ban after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra, while Terry has been charged over alleged racist remarks made towards QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

Why did it take so long for a verdict in the Suarez-Evra case? What is the worst possible outcome for Terry? What can be done to eradicate racism in football?

Tweet your questions for Ged, Amar and Ben to @GoalUK ahead of the discussion, and you can follow it live here from 14:00.
