Peterhead apologise over ignoble tweet

PETERHEAD have apologised for comments made by their player Steven Noble on social networking site Twitter after Sunday’s Third Division game with Rangers that finished 1-0 to the Glasgow side.

Noble was involved in a challenge that saw the Ibrox side’s Francisco Sandaza receive a kick in the face and the full back had boasted that “it was the only part of the game I have watched back”.

Rangers fans were quick to protest and the Balmoor club have said via their website: 
“Peterhead Football Club would like to apologise for any offence or annoyance caused by Steven’s comments. The player has been reprimanded by manager Jim McInally and warned of his future behaviour. Jim has also re-iterated his directive that players should not use any social networking sites to comment on games.”

The 24-year-old could also face a sanction from SFA Compliance officer Vincent Lunny, who carpeted Queen’s Park skipper Ricky Little for his comments on Twitter about allegedly injuring Rangers players back in July.
