Reds midfielder Stephen Dawson has apologised to Barnsley supporters following his reaction to an individual fans’ personal abuse on Saturday.
Stephen said, “Firstly I would like to apologise for my actions on Saturday. My emotions were high and I shouldn’t have reacted the way I did.
“I’m really disappointed with what was said to me but I need to be professional enough to take that. The fans have paid an awful lot of money to come and see us and to lose five-nil, I can understand their frustrations and disappointment.
“I can only apologise on my behalf and assure all the supporters it won’t happen again.”
Stephen will also make a significant donation to Barnsley Hospice.
