Having travelled with the club on their pre-season tour of New Zealand, Gold favourited a tweet sent to him by a supporter which called for Allardyce to be sacked.
"Is today the day we get rid of BFS?? @davidgold fingers crossed," it read.
But he later insisted: "After a 33 hour flight from New Zealand, I was in my car scanning through my tweets and it seems I accidentally (sic) favourited one.
"It has made some of the papers today so I should clarify that I did not and would never deliberately or intentionally endorse a tweet that questions our manager's position. Lesson: don't use twitter when you're jet-lagged!"
