A post shared by Zander Murray (@zandermurrayofficial)Zander Murray has an admirable history of putting trolls in their place.

The out soccer star swats down homophobes online with regularity while using his platform to elevate queer voices. On Sunday night, Murray stepped into the fray once again, albeit for a different cause.

The brouhaha started when 41-year-old Joey Barton, a former Premier League standout, needlessly ripped a 17-year-old goalie playing in the Scottish Women’s Premier League.

The goaltender in question, Ava Easdon, struggled in net Sunday for her club, Patrick Thistle. Barton, who has an inglorious history of spewing misogynistic rants, lambasted Eason on social media.
