Sheffield United suspend Connor Brown for comments that he made in support of teammate Ched Evans.

League One side Sheffield United have suspended Connor Brown with immediate effect.

The club have taken the decision following an investigation into comments made by the 19-year-old on Twitter in the wake of United striker Ched Evans being sentenced to five years in prison for rape.

Brown is believed to have called Evans's 19-year-old female victim a "money-grabbing little tramp".

The Blades then proceeded to analyse the reserve player's words, while a rape charity reportedly made a complaint to North Wales Police.

No indication has been given as to how long Brown will be suspended for.
