The man at the centre of the scandal.

English fourth division (League  Two) club Aldershot Town have put Marvin Morgan on the  transfer list after he wrote “I hope you all die” in a rant  about fans on the social network site Twitter, the club said  on Thursday.  

“Careful consideration is required for all future use of  social networking sites by players and staff as a means of  communication,” Aldershot said in a statement on their website  (www.theshots.co.uk). 

Striker Morgan, who was jeered during the club’s 2-1  defeat to Hereford on Monday, was also suspended and fined two  weeks’ wages for posting: “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 had expressed remorse,  while the club branded the remarks “completely irresponsible”. 

“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 statement added. 

The southern English club lie just above the relegation  zone.
