Sheffield United have launched an internal inquiry into comments made on Twitter by reserve-team player Connor Brown following team-mate Ched Evans' prison sentence last week after being found guilty of rape.
Brown, 19, responded to Evans' five-year prison sentence by tweeting his support for Evans.
A statement released on the club's official website read: "Sheffield United confirmed today that an internal investigation is under way into social media comments made by reserve-team player Connor Brown following the verdict in the Ched Evans trial."
