The clip has been labelled by hundreds online as “grim”, “vile” and “disgusting”.
As visiting team Guiseley confirmed in the above statement, they “unreservedly condemn this disgraceful action” and reassured that this does not alight with their “family-friendly football club” value, nor does it reflect their “core of regular and committed travelling supporters.
The West Yorkshire side went on to say that while they are investigating the incident, they do not currently have any information regarding the identity of the individual in question.

Much to Thompson’s disappointment, he was ultimately sent off in their 1-0 defeat after he responded by spraying the bottle back in the fan‘s direction.
