SHEFFIELD UNITED HAVE launched an investigation into comments made by their reserve defender Connor Brown on Twitter, regarding the Ched Evans rape conviction.
Brown launched a vicious attack on Evans’ 19-year-old victim as well as the UK’s legal system, which he branded ‘a load of f*****g s**t.’
He then moved his focus on to the girl at the centre of the trial.
“If ur a slag ur a slag don’t try get money from being a slag [sic]… Stupid girls… I feel sick,” he wrote, after branding the victim a ‘money grabbing little tramp.’
