Friday 08 August 2014
The image, which has since been deleted, has understandably angered Hammers' supporters, however Morrison was quick to reiterate his love of the east Londoners on his Twitter account, writing:
"West Ham is in my heart .Love the club and the way the have stood by me."
A court heard on Thursday that the 21-year-old threatened to throw acid in his ex-girlfriend’s face and have her killed.
Morrison was initially arrested and charged with two counts of common assault after allegedly punching and slapping Ms Mansoor, 19, and her mother Parveen Mansoor, 39, in the early hours of 27 July in Salford.

Morrison spoke only to confirm his name, age and address at the brief hearing, as the new allegation of causing his ex-girlfriend to fear that violence would be used against her was added to the charges.
The court heard the harassment allegedly spanned the period from 1 January 1 2010 to 20 July this year.
Ravel Morrison in action for West Ham David Fish QC, defending, indicated that Morrison intended to deny the charges. The footballer was bailed to appear at Manchester Crown Court for a preliminary hearing on 28 August.
His bail conditions stipulate that he lives in Canary Wharf, London, does not contact directly or indirectly the two women complainants, does not go on to the street where they live and does not enter the Greater Manchester area.
The only exceptions to the ban on visiting Manchester are for court appearances, to see his lawyers or to play in a West Ham game in the area – provided he returns to London immediately after the match.
Although touted as a bright prospect at Old Trafford, Morrison appeared only in the League Cup before former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson sold him to West Ham for £650,000 in January 2012.
