The England under-17 World Cup victor had to be restrained by team-mates and staff following Liverpool's 2-0 win over the Russian side in the under-19 competition.
Brewster told referee Mohammed Al-Hakim of the alleged abuse - which happened towards the end of the game - and also informed the fourth official.
Liverpool Under-19 coach Steven Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo: "It's hard for me to comment on it right now". It's something that the club will look into and deal with.
"But you've got Rhian (Brewster) returning, who's just won a World Cup, who played well before he left, and they're the decisions you've got to make". I don't want to take any gloss off that because he was superb.
Speaking to Liverpool'sofficial club website about squad selection, he said: "We had to put Bobby Adekanye on the bench in the last game, and he didn't deserve to be on the bench".
Their complaint is understood to concern a matter of racist abuse.
Liverpool headed into their Champions League clash at home to Russian outfit Spartak Moscow knowing full well that a victory on their own patch at Anfield would propel them into the Champions League knockout stages.
