Elgin FC acts on 'unacceptable' social media comment

A Scottish football team has said a volunteer community coach is no longer associated with the club over a social media comment.

League Two side Elgin FC said it acted against Chris De Sykes over what it described as a "completely unacceptable personal posting on social media".

The club added: "The matter has been reported to the authorities."

A Police Scotland spokeswoman told BBC Scotland: "We have been made aware and inquiries will be carried out."
