" Chelsea fans issue internet death threats to ref

Chelsea have vowed to punish any fans who made death threats at referee Terje Hauge on the club's official messageboard and will investigate how the comments were allowed to be posted.

Norwegian official Hauge provoked the anger of Blues supporters after issuing defender Asier del Horno with a straight red card during the 2-1 Champions League defeat by Barcelona on Wednesday night.

While clumsy, many felt Del Horno's challenge on Lionel Messi did not warrant a sending off and Barcelona's Argentina midfielder certainly made the most of the contact between them.

Threats to Hauge subsequently appeared on the club's official chat site and on a Norwegian fans' forum, provoking condemnation from Chelsea who have removed the offending comments.

A club statement read: 'Chelsea totally condemns any threats made to referees, officials, players or supporters of any club or football organisation.

'A small number of abusive messages were posted on the official chat site yesterday, Thursday, following the Barcelona game.

'These were among 4,000 general messages posted yesterday and the offending messages were removed as soon as Chelsea were alerted to them.

'If Chelsea are able to trace the authors of these messages, and if they are Chelsea season-ticket holders or members, then action will be taken against the culprits.

'Chelsea does monitor the official chat site but it will now be conducting a review of these procedures and improving them.

'Chelsea would like to stress that, at this stage, it is impossible to say whether the messages were posted by Chelsea fans as the site is publicly accessible.

'Similarly the club is not in control of other fan websites, inside or outside of the United Kingdom that claim connections with Chelsea, and those websites are also publicly accessible.'

Similar threats were made to official Anders Frisk after the Swede sent off Didier Drogba in the first leg of the clubs' tie last season. He subsequently retired as a result. "
