Club release statement on racist abuse towards Williams

Recommended Posts

So the club have released a statement about racist abuse received by Williams on social media. Fan banned and police involved. 

Does anyone know if the abuse was related to him being black or being Irish?

Not seen it tbh, so I've no idea. Whatever anyone thinks of his abilities as a footballer, racist abuse is completely unacceptable.

Not heard anything. 

If it's because he's Irish that's ok 😂 but any other abuse isn't welcome

It's cowardly to post things like that on social media. I don't understand why people like that aren't before a judge.

Regardless of performance ability etc racist abuse should never ever be tolerated.

And ...he's one of our own.

Whatever you think about his limitations as a player this is utterly shameful, how embarrassing for the club and us as fans that something like this has happened.. I hope those at Hillsbrough tomorrow give him the biggest cheer of the day and sing his name. Disgusting behaviour I hope the fan is banned for life

All players and managers are in the public eye and therefore will receive criticism (and praise) but that should be limited to how they played, not what colour they are or what their faith is. 

I once read in a national paper that a manager said I was a disgrace. I took umbrage to this and rang him to tell him that describing me as a disgrace reflects on me, my family and the responsible position I held at the time. He apologised and agreed that in future he would criticise decisions and not the individual.

Manager calling you a disgrace. It's not exactly uncommon in football for managers to abuse referees is it?

To my knowledge it only happened once to me. Referees are often publicly criticised but it's not that often it is of a personal nature.
