Kieran McGeeney was voted out as Kildare manager by the county board tonight. Here's how Twitter (including some Kildare players) reacted to the news.
Huge decision by the county board... some fellas must have serious short term memories. #kildaregaa

The commitment, decency and professionalism shown by Geezer to his players over the past 6 years will not be forgotten by us, the players.

Kildare will regret that decision. Geezer is the ultimate professional in everything he does. The players wanted him. That says it all.

Very harsh on kieran mcgeeney...gonna find it very difficult to replace him. 5 quarter finals in 6 years and one semi...I'd take that

Kieran McGeeney is no longer manager of Kildare, voted out tonight. Will they live to regret that one?

Ridiculous move by Kildare. Forget where they were before Kieran McGeeney.

As a Kildare supporter McGeeney restored credibility to the county and demanded high standards. His replacement better be impressive. #gaa

McGeeney couldn't move Kildare onto the next level... like Bobby Robson at Newcastle, Alan Curbishley at charlton...

K McGeeney joins P Canavan, K Walsh, C Counihan & J McNulty on list of 'recent' All-Ireland winning players with no county job in '14

Forget pros&cons of #McGeeney staying, the vote shud not have occurred in-camera.Delegates shud stand by views in an open, transparent forum

Having worked with McGeeney with International rules could only speak extremely highly of him.Kildares loss will be another county's gain.

Think it's wrong decision. Look where Kildare football was before Mcgeeney took over. Blooded a lot of decent young talent last coupla yrs.

Geezer was one of the few things I liked about Kildare. I can go back to hoping the lose again now
