Team-mate Kyle Dempsey also hit back on social media after a fan who accused the midfielder of not ‘turning up’.

In a tweet since deleted, Dempsey referred to the four man of the match awards he has won.

Rosler says he has been made aware of the accusations and ones levelled at Ash Hunter and Amari’i Bell and will address the matter when the players return to training on Friday.

Speaking to The Gazette on Thursday, he said: “I will deal with that situation but we are not in today.

“I’m not on social media. I got informed by the club but I will deal with the players and that situation when we are back in training on Friday.”
