The Crystal Palace team doctor was racially abused just yards away from Selhurst Park on Sunday.
Dr Zafar Iqbal was taking his two youngest children to watch the Premier League final day clash with Bournemouth.
However, before entering the stadium, the former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool doctor was left ‘speechless’ after the racial abuse from a three-year-old.
Dr Iqbal, who is head of sports medicine for the Eagles, claims the child’s father tried to ‘scold’ him for his remarks following the incident.
He tweeted: “Devastated and speechless. Taking my 2 youngest kids to their first ever game at Selhurst park and walking a few hundred yards from the stadium a 3 y old shouted to his dad – “Look daddy there’s some P****”. His dad ‘attempted to scold’ him.
“Racism is not just a football problem.”
He continued: “I didn’t know how to react. I couldn’t tell off the 3 y old kid. Should I have said something to the dad while my 2 young kids were there?”
The game itself was a thrilling affair, with both sides throwing caution to the wind on the final day.
But the abuse of Dr Iqbal, a British Muslim Pakistani, will undoubtedly leave a sour taste in the mouths of Eagles supporters.
