Sheffield United today issued an immediate ban on a Blades fan who was identified making vitriolic statements on a social media platform.
The club condemns all forms of abuse on any online platform and will act quickly to punish anyone who is responsible for this type of offensive behaviour.
United's safety officer, Jurgen Morton-Hall, comments: "This ban prevents the individual from attending Sheffield United games, both home and away, with immediate effect.
"We want this ban to act as a deterrent. We are continually monitoring social media and online platforms. As well as acting on behalf of the club, we will not hesitate in making the police and specific social media platform providers aware in order for perpetrators to be brought to justice."
Sheffield United will not comment further on this matter.
