Ian Harte last played for Ireland in 2007 and since Giovanni Trapattoni has taken over, Harte has repeatedly criticised the Italian.
Back in May 2011 Harte had a go at Trap when he claimed that the manager didn't know he was Irish. Since joining Reading in 2010, Harte has been excellent for his club side but it seems that the 35 year-old isn't in Trap's plans.
Harte today took to Twitter to have another go at Trapattoni in branding him "a clown". Not so sure that's the right way to go about getting into the managers plans.
