Three men who were arrested on suspicion of racially abusing a manager at a Gills match have been released without charge.
The trio were arrested on Saturday, April 5, after complaints that a visiting manager was abused.
At the time police said they were investigating chants made towards Rotherham manager Steve Evans during the Sky Bet League 1 match against Gillingham.
The three men, aged 24, 27 and 57 were detained on suspicion of a committing racially-aggravated public order offence and were arrested in the main Medway Stand at the end of the game which Rotherham won 4-3 with two late goals.
All three were questioned and initially released on bail until May 7, pending further inquiries.
However this week, police said the men were all released without charge.
It is not the first time Mr Evans has been involved in allegations over racial abuse involving Gillingham.
He previously made an official complaint in 2011 about then Gills boss, Andy Hessenthaler, after a heated exchange at a Boxing Day match when he was manager of Crawley Town.
Words were exchanged between players and staff of both teams.
A police officer was sent into the changing rooms to calm the situation down and the complaint was later dropped by Mr Evans.
