Dundee United’s social media accounts were hacked as the side faced off against St Mirren in the play-off final on Sunday.
Bizarre activity began to emerge on the club’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts in the closing stages of the 90-minute match, which the Tangerines lost 2-0 on penalties.
Several random tweets that had nothing to do with the match started popping up, including one that read “Mon the Rangers”.
Another read: “Me n big Cammy boi running amock [sic].”
One tweet read: “Happening troops it’s me messiah.”
A couple of tweets were also of a sectarian nature.
United quickly shut down their Twitter account as they tried to resolve the issue.
But just as they had, their Facebook account was also hacked.
A post appeared on the platform claiming that the club’s new manager was Celtic superfan Jay Beattie.
Dundee United say they are “investigating” the hack of their social media accounts.
A statement issued on Sunday evening read: “Unfortunately, Dundee United’s social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook were both hacked during the Premiership play-off final second leg and remain offline while the Club investigates the breach.
“We want to apologise for any offence that was caused by the content that was posted.
“The accounts will remain offline, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We are planning to be back online as soon as possible.”
