Bolton boss Dougie Freedman has admitted he will conduct a review of how his players conduct themselves on Twitter.

Wanderers striker Marvin Sordell has come under intense criticism from opposing supporters in recent days, following the news that a 13-year-old Millwall supporter has been banned from attending games for racially abusing the England under-21 international.

Many of the club's younger players have a presence on the social network and Freedman has admitted he will look into how they use the service and deal with any issues that may arise.

"I will need to look at it," Freedman told The Bolton News. "I have tried to give myself some breathing space - a month to look at the whole situation, with different things and get everyone's view on it.

"I am two weeks into that and I will be looking at certain situations regarding that issue.

"I am not sure where he (Sordell) is at with his mental state right now, or any player with this Twitter thing.

"I am not a tweeter and I don't really understand it, but I will look at the fuller picture. There is an issue there and it will be dealt with."
