PremierLeague-News.Com - Callum Robinson, West Brom's hero at Chelsea on Saturday, received racial abuse on Instagram in the aftermath of Albion's victory
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The abuse Callum Robinson received on social media in the wake of his excellent goals and performance in West Brom’s stunning victory at Chelsea on Saturday was, sadly, nothing new. Albion forward Robinson, who struck twice in the second half as the Baggies ran out impressive 5-2 winners, took to Instagram - as so many footballers do nowadays - to revel in the victory in the aftermath of the game. He shared the awful responses - that so many professional footballers receive - via his story. Monkey emojis from mindless individuals, hidden behind disguised accounts, only scratched the surface, boss Sam Allardyce has revealed. The Albion boss condemned the abuse - Robinson is the third Albion player to receive such abuse this term - and called on the Government and those social media organisations in question to work harder to cut out such vitriol, which is becoming all too common.

One was Rom [Romaine Sawyers] and another wishes to remain anonymous,” Allardyce said. “Nothing as bad as Callum got - over 70 messages from apparently 20 different sites on Instagram. “We’ve had a great response from the police, and our club supports him in every way. Our club has always been against any form of discrimination. Within the football walls we’ve gone forward in a very positive manner. “Outside of the law is where these lads live on social media. The solution can only be brought about by people in the hierarchy of the government and those in these businesses who run these sites. “They’re clearly neglecting their responsibility to cut out this form of discrimination and these racist remarks. People hiding behind false sites and posting obscene messages, in the world we live in today and the technology we have today, is simply not good enough.” Read More Related Articles Sam Allardyce outlines West Brom's transfer hopes for Okay Yokuslu Read More Related Articles The key moment at Chelsea which sparked West Brom's goal glut Robinson had broken back into the Albion side in style when he fired in their third and fifth goals to round off a magical afternoon for Albion, and he ought to have been able to remember it for all the right reasons.

. “I’m glad to say he’s a strong character, but it’s hurt him, the police have been brilliant in interviewing him, the club have done their best to look into it,” Allardyce said of Robinson.

“The club are trying their best; they’ve written to Instagram, but I feel we’d get a feeble response, not a positive one. “His two goals and what he produced on the pitch is the most important thing, and hopefully he can put this behind him. “It’s a responsibility higher up than we could ever imagine who can put this right. We as individuals or as a football club, or even the whole of football, can’t deal with this - I think it lies higher in the government and across the world it lies with the people running these sites who are making trillions of pounds out of it. “They’ve got the know how of how to stop it but clearly aren’t doing enough at the moment.”
