Ace’s tackle is ex­posed on Twit­ter

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

A HACKER posted a NAKED photo of a fooball star...as his Twit­ter pro­file pic.

Burn­ley FC player Keith Treacy ( above) was shown ly­ing on his bed with his legs in the air and his tackle ex­posed.

Treacy, 22, had his Twit­ter ac­count @Treace11 hacked while he was away on in­ter­na­tional duty with the Repub­lic of Ire­land.

Treacey’s usual pro­file im­age is thought to be a Thunderbird puppet.

Clarets fan Joanne Green was among those sound­ing the alarm re­gard­ing the bo­gus pro­file photo.

A Burn­ley club spokesman said that play­ers are free to use Twit­ter for per­sonal use but not to com­ment on club mat­ters.

He wouldn’t com­ment on this in­ci­dent as it was a “per­sonal” mat­ter.

Within hours of the pic­ture be­ing posted it had been re­moved.

Treacy’s ac­count, which had more than 3,300 fol­low­ers, has since been deleted.
