There are reports that Spartak's Twitter account was actually being controlled by defender Georgi Dzhikiya at the time the tweet in question was posted.

Spartak Moscow once again find themselves mired in a racism scandal, this morning tweeting a racial slur about one of their own players.

Russian Federation and it's troubled racism slurs are in the news again after Premier League side Spartak Moscow caused controversy by posting a racially insensitive tweet from their warm weather training camp.

"Look at how the chocolates are melting under the sun", the video's caption said.

The message was accompanied by several emojis of laughing faces and chocolate bars, above a 13-second clip showing the players, reported to be the Brazilian trio Fernando, Luiz Adriano and Pedro Rocha, smiling while stretching in sunny conditions.

The tweet comes just six months before Russian Federation hosts its first ever World Cup, and one week after Liverpool officially complained to UEFA over alleged racist abuse aimed at Rhian Brewster from Spartak players in the U19 match in December.

"For Russia's biggest club to tolerate and then celebrate racist references of this kind is wrong", said Piara Powar, the head of European anti-discrimination organisation Fare network, in comments carried by the BBC.

Leonid Mironov, the club's youth-team captain, was last month charged with racist behaviour towards Liverpool's Rhian Brewster during a UEFA Youth League match. "We are a united family".
