Player suspended over Twitter rant

Aldershot's Marvin Morgan was today suspended, fined two weeks' wages and placed on the transfer list for comments he made on social networking website Twitter.

The League Two club issued a statement after meeting with the striker who was booed when substituted during the club's 2-1 defeat to Hereford on Monday.

Morgan responded to the crowd's reaction by later posting a Twitter message saying: "Like to thank the fans who booed me off the pitch. Where's that going to get you! I hope you all die.''

According to Aldershot, Morgan has expressed remorse, while the club branded the remarks "completely irresponsible''.

Today's club statement read: "The player accepted that his conduct was totally misguided and inappropriate and he accepts that his actions were incorrect and ill disciplined.

"Accepting that his actions had been foolish he explained that they had been made in the heat of the moment and apologised for the distress he had caused.

"The football club are satisfied that the player meant no malice with his comments. However they were completely irresponsible and contrary to the values of Aldershot Town Football Club. The player has also undermined the good work that he and his colleagues have done servicing the local community.

"The club is also of the opinion that careful consideration is required for all future use of social networking sites by players and staff as a means of communication. The hearing decided to fine the player the maximum two weeks penalty during which time he will be absent from the club. He has also been placed on the transfer list.''
