Blackpool fans vented their anger towards chairman Karl Oyston after he was alleged to have called a supporter “a retard” in a furious text message exchange.

The Football Association has said it is aware of the row, with Oyston alleged to have told the supporter to ”enjoy the rest of your special needs day out” as part of a series of abusive messages sent back and forth.

Blackpool have not responded to the alleged comments, but supporters of the club have been far more vocal in their response to the claims.

Steve Melrose, a Blackpool fan for over 35 years said he was “disgusted” by what Oyston is reported to have said.

Melrose, who has a 10-year-old autistic son, told Press Association Sport: “He is accusing fans of being retarded and having learning difficulties. I feel absolutely disgusted. I won’t be going anywhere near the football ground until he has left.”
