Stenhousemuir Football Club have launched an investigation into an incident that occurred during Thursday night’s game against Albion Rovers.
The club released a statement shortly after the game indicating that the incident will be referred to the Scottish FA.
It said: “The club is aware of a verbal altercation that took place between players from both Stenhousemuir and Albion Rovers during tonight’s match”.
“We have spoken to the players involved, David Cox (Albion Rovers) who was on the bench, and Jonathan Tiffoney (Stenhousemuir) who was playing”.
“Both players are making claims of serious and wholly inappropriate comments being made during the game that have implications for player wellbeing and mental health”.
The 32-year-old accused stand-in captain Tiffoney of the abuse in a social media post that was released just as the second half got underway at Ochilview.
In the video Cox announced his retirement from the game, as he continues to deal with his battles against mental health.
