    Ireland captain Katie McCabe has addressed the "inaccurate rumors and gossip" that have been spread about her in an emotional video posted to social media , after footage of her on holidays has been shared widely online .

    The Republic of Ireland captain has been the subject of online discussion in recent days afte r a video surfaced on social media which showed the Arsenal star in a nightclub on holiday in Ibiza .

    In the video, McCabe, whose trip to Rome with Arsenal teammate Caitlin Foord sparked romance rumors last month , could be seen speaking to a woman beside a DJ booth in a nightclub. The video was widely shared on social media, mainly by troll accounts of fans from rival clubs.

    Addressing the rumors, McCabe uploaded an emotional video to her Snapchat account where she slammed the "inaccurate rumours and gossip" that were being spread about her before thanking fans for their support.

    McCabe's full statement is as follows:

    "Hey guys, I've had a mad busy day so I'm just kind of sitting down and... I don't usually really do this type of stuff or respond to these types of things because it's literally people spreading rubbish on social media and I can't really control what people make up.

    "But, can I just ask to those of you who have taken hours and hours out of your life to try and cause an issue, like, have you ever tried to talk to a friend next to a DJ booth?

    "It's honestly been awful to see the rumours that have been spread. So, like, rather than spread the inaccurate rumours and gossip, why don't you think about how it would feel if you were sent those abusive messages for something that you didn't actually do.

    "It's not been nice, it's not nice to hear or read. But, I guess the social media platforms are probably dealing with these accounts now that shared.

    "So, I'm cool, but I just wanted to clear that up. You wouldn't be doing that in front of thousands of people on stage. So, yeah, let people have a rare night off with their mates.

    "To all the good ones, I see you and I appreciate the support and I'll see you guys soon."
