A Forest Green Rovers player was allegedly subjected to homophobic abuse during Saturday’s game with Tranmere Rovers.

The club joined a four-day blackout on their social media channels on Friday, as they joined players, clubs and broadcasters to say online abuse is not acceptable.

Returning to socials this morning, the club say they were 'disappointed' to hear of the alleged homophobic abuse.

A spokesman for Forest Green said: "With football clubs and organisations switching off social media accounts in a collective protest against online abuse by fans, it was especially disappointing to have this occur on the pitch.

"We need better from players if we are to expect better from fans. To ensure there is no place in football for abuse of any kind - that has to start on the pitch.

"The club will fully support the FA investigation into this matter."

Rovers overcame promotion chasing Tranmere Rovers claiming a hard fought 2-1 victory.
