Gary Neville Involved In Twitter Spat Over Signing Of Irish Striker

Gary Neville was embroiled in a Twitter row owner with Accrington Stanley owner Andy Holt after the latter accused Neville of trying to 'steal' a place in the EFL following Salford City's signing of Irish striker Adam Rooney from Aberdeen.

Neville is a co-owner of Salford City, and the recently promoted National League club raised eyebrows following the signing of Rooney from Aberdeen, with the forward reported to be on £4,000 a week in the fifth tier of English football.

Holt tweeted his disapproval at the deal tagging the the Sky Sports pundit:

I didn't take long for Neville to respond, accusing Holt of wanting "a franchise league where the established can’t be challenged":

The pair continued to trade jibes on Twitter with neither prepared to back down:

While you can understand Holt's frustration  at the ability of Salford to pay higher wages, you can hardly begrudge Neville and co. making the most of their financial muscle as the look to climb up the leagues.
