Declan Rice sends message to West Ham fanbase after penalty miss vs Forest

The midfielder’s effort cost his side dear at the City Ground

West Ham United star Declan Rice has taken to social media on Sunday evening, to send a message of apology to the club’s supporters.

The Irons, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

In the first of two Premier League fixtures on Sunday, David Moyes’ troops made the trip to the City Ground, eyeing a first points haul of the new campaign.

When all was said and done, however, the visitors were instead forced to face up to a 2nd defeat on the bounce.

This came as an action-packed affair, filled with drama and goalscoring opportunities, was ultimately decided by a solitary goal courtesy of Forest debutant Taiwo Awoniyi.

West Ham, though, as alluded to above, were afforded a glorious opportunity to come away from proceedings this afternoon with at least a share of the spoils.

This came 20 minutes into the 2nd-half, upon referee Rob Jones pointing to the spot.

Declan Rice, in turn, took responsibility, only to see his ensuing effort from 12 yards well saved by impressive Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson:

And, evidently, Rice has since been left feeling responsible for his side’s 2nd straight loss as a result.

Taking to his official Twitter account, the England international has sent a direct apology to the Hammers faithful, albeit whilst too revealing his take that Moyes’ men ‘created enough to get something from the game’.
