Reading FC manager has called the racial abuse aimed at Royals captain Liam Moore as 'incomprehnsible'.

Moore deleted his Twitter account after being subjected to vile abuse on Friday evening, following Reading's defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.

The Serbian manager confirmed that the Royals captain has been supported by the club in the wake of receiving the abuse.

Paunovic said: "Liam is good. Obviously, he was very affected - I spoke with him right after the game when I heard what happened.

"He needed support at that moment, but he is a strong guy and a huge leader. 

"He will bounce back from that. 

"He took actions that we as a club want to take. What we did was report the case and give the support to Liam and his family.

"It is unnacceptable to happen. In the times we're living, it is incomprehensible.

"We, as a club, will provide help to find out the responsible party and support Liam and his family in this case."

When asked whether Reading would follow the lead of Swansea City, who launched a seven day boycott of social media to make a stance in the battle against online discrimination, Paunovic said: "We will address that and it is going to be an action that we as a club will do.

"That is something we're still in the process [of planning] and we will the public know when we're ready to announce that."
