Football: STOP RACISTS: HOULLIER PLEA.

GERARD HOULLIER has thrown his support behind attempts to get UEFA to act to stop racist abuse.

Liverpool, Fulham and Arsenal players have been subjected to racial attacks during European ties this season.

Houllier said: ``It is urgent that UEFA do something about it. Racial abuse is the worst form of lack of humanity.

``I have no respect for the people who do it, it's backward, something you could imagine 2000 years ago.''

UEFA could fine clubs for the incidents, make them play behind closed doors or expel them from competitions.
