A KIDS soccer coach claims his Twitter account was hacked after a racist tweet was sent to Marcus Rashford.

The Powick, Worcestershire father of two also denied sending a disgusting homophobic tweet targeting England’s women’s football team.

Vile trolls targeted Rashford, Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho after England were beaten on penalties in last night’s excruciating final.

A tweet from Scott’s Twitter account Scottywwfc said, “Marcus Rashford that MBE needs to burn your fake.

“Pack your bags and go to your own country.”


The tweet was posted just minutes after Manchester United striker Rashford, 23, missed the point in a nerve-wracking penalty shoot-out.

Scott denied being responsible for the sick tweets when approached at his home in Powick, Worcs.

The Wolves fan told Sun Online, “I didn’t send it buddy – I was hacked.” I didn’t post it.

“The first thing I found out about it was when I woke up this morning. I’m going to see my lawyer in the morning. I don’t know who hacked me.”

When asked who was responsible for a homophobic tweet from August 2020 in which Scott’s account suggested a “fat d ***” to coach the English women’s team, Scott replied, “Buddy – my Twitter has been hacked. Easy.”

Another tweet from his account this morning at 12:43 pm said, “I have to apologize to Marcus Rashford, but I’m still very angry. But not on you. “

A Wolves spokesman tweeted tonight that they had been made aware of “a racist tweet sent last night by a” fan “of the Wolves” and reported it to the police.


It comes when Boris Johnson said tonight racists targeting English players after their Euro 2020 defeat to “crawl back under their rocks”.

Previously, real estate agent Savills suspended a worker after broadcasting racist slurs against English players from his Twitter account.

A post from Andrew Bone’s Twitter account branded the players as an N-word, claiming the English stars “ruined it for us” after the loss.

Real estate agent Savills confirmed that Bone was under investigation this morning over the tweets – before later adding that he has since been suspended.

But Bone’s family told The Sun today that his account had been hacked – and he reported the matter to the police.

They also claimed Bone was “not racist” and closed his accounts when he received news last night.

For some of the players it is truly unforgivable to be abused.

England boss Gareth Southgate

At a press conference today, England boss Gareth Southgate attacked racists who targeted his players with heinous online abuse.

He said, “For some of them it is really unforgivable to be abused.

“I know that a lot of it comes from abroad. People following these things could explain that.

“But not everything, and it’s just not what we stand for.

“I think we were a beacon when it came to bringing people together.”

Tonight, England star Tyrone Mings beat up Home Secretary Priti Patel for “fueling the fire” after Three Lions players were racially insulted.

It came after the Prime Minister targeted the racists and said, “Shame on you.

“I hope you crawl back under the rock you came out of.”
