Brentford striker Ivan Toney: Video was edited

Brentford striker Ivan Toney has apologised after slating the club on social media.

Furious Bees fans demanded the club punish their star striker over the video, which went viral on social media.

Toney has since taken to social media to say sorry to the club's supporters in a statement released on Saturday morning.

He tweeted: "I am aware of a video of me that was published on social media today, taken in Dubai where I have been on holiday during the winter break.

"In it, I used language that was unacceptable. The video was cut short and edited, but I have to accept the impact this has had and I realise I should not have put myself in that position.

"I have explained to the gaffer what happened and apologised to him but I also want to apologise to all Brentford fans.

"I respect the way you all support the team and I have to say how much I love playing for the club and for you.

"I'll be back at training next week, working hard to score more goals to win us more games for the rest of the season."
