A Forfar Athletic player has hit out after claiming he was spat at by a rival fan.
Goalkeeper Marc McCallum accused a Raith Rovers supporter of going “one step too far” during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Station Park.
Making the accusation on Twitter after the match, McCallum said: “All up for taking a bit of stick and banter during any football match, but to the Raith fan who spat at me today that was one step too far!”
McCallum was involved in an exchange with Raith fans following John Baird’s equaliser against his former club in the second half.
The goalie’s tweet sparked counter-claims from Raith fans who accused him of squirting a water battle into the crowd before the incident happened.
Raith chairman Bill Clark said he was unaware of the spitting allegation and nothing was reported to Stark’s Park officials after the game.
Raith supporter liaison officer Margie Robertson took to Twitter to apologise to McCallum, stating: “Unacceptable. So sorry.”
Forfar also said they were unaware of the alleged incident.
Some Raith fans did not get into the ground until after kick-off because a tyre blew out on the supporters’ bus on the way to Forfar.
Raith’s fightback ensured they remain top of Scottish League One.
