An abusive message posted on Walsall's official Twitter account after their 1-0 win over Wolves has been removed, with Walsall apologising to Wolves and their fans.
Walsall issued a statement apologising for the tweet, and ensuring that they would do their upmost to punish those responsible. It came after the two club's first meeting since 2003, which Walsall narrowly won.
The statement read;
"Walsall Football Club would like to apologise unreservedly to Wolverhampton Wanderers and their supporters for the offensive Tweet that appeared on the club’s Official Twitter Page – @WFCOfficial – last night."
"Our Official account was hacked at 22:36 last night and a derogative and frankly disgusting Tweet was published. As soon as the club’s Communications Team, who were at Molineux for the fixture, were made aware of the Tweet, it was deleted and an apology issued."
"Walsall Football Club are taking this matter very, very seriously. A full investigation will be launched. Walsall FC do not condone this type of behaviour and when the culprit is identified the club will be taking the strongest course of action."
Before being deleted, the offending message was retweeted more than 3,000 times.
