Neymar offers olive branch to Scots

SAO PAULO (AP) Neymar and his Santos teammates have displayed a banner with a message of appreciation for Scottish fans, trying to make peace after accusing them of racist taunts in Brazil's friendly seven days ago.

Santos players entered their match against Palmeiras on Sunday carrying a banner that said: "All against racism. Nothing against Scotland."

Neymar had complained he was racially taunted by Scotland supporters when a banana was thrown near him in Brazil's 2-0 win in London last Sunday.

Officials dismissed the allegations of racist taunts, saying a German tourist in the Brazilian fan section threw the banana.
