 "We are dealing with the complaint made by the player and we are currently taking statements, collating evidence and making inquiries to locate and arrest the offender," said South Yorkshire Police senior investigating officer Mark Monteiro. "We are also using CCTV footage from around the ground to identify suspects who may have been responsible for other offenses before, during or after the match."

Leeds manager Neil Warnock called for Kirkland's assailant to be given a prison sentence as he described the events at Hillsborough as "an absolute disgrace."
