Ex-footballer Stan Collymore, who was a striker for Aston Villa, was allegedly receiving racist and abusive tweets from Twitter trolls.

Last night Northumbria police arrested a 21-year-old man in connection to the abuse after Collymore reported them to the police.

The original tweets have been deleted from Twitter but by the sounds of things Stan wasn’t too happy being called something so derogative!

And Collymore has tweeted more implying that the trolls were three university students.

Seriously grow up!
