After the draw, a video showed a member of the team's technical staff moving the visibly frustrated 31-year-old player away from the pitch after he engaged in a verbal argument with the supporters in the stands.

"To the Blue Army, I'd like to apologise for my actions after yesterday's match,” Morsy, who is the team skipper, said via twitter on Wedensday.

"I was emotional and I completely understand the fans frustrations, we will give all we have to turn it around."

"I can't explain how proud I am to lead this iconic football club,” he added.

In September 2021, Morsy joined the third-tier club on a three-year deal from Championship club Middlesbrough.

"Every single week you turn up in your numbers, pay your hard earned cash to follow us home & away and there's not a second that goes by that I don't appreciate that."

"See you on Saturday,” he concluded referring to Saturday’s game against Forest Green Rovers.

Morsy made his Egypt debut in August 2016 and earned earned seven international caps.

Ipswich Town currently lie fourth in the league table with 57 points from 31 matches, 10 points behind leaders Plymouth Argyle.
