The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

NOR­WICH boss Neil Adams’ be­lieves play­ers would be bet­ter to hold their tongue on Twit­ter.

Goal­keeper John Ruddy lashed out at fans via Twit­ter after re­ceiv­ing sar­cas­tic cheers for punch­ing clear a cross against Read­ing last week­end.

Ruddy had ear­lier mis­judged a cor­ner to al­low Jake Cooper to net dur­ing the Ca­naries’ 2-1 de­feat at Car­row Road.

Ruddy posted “5 years of LOYAL ser­vice for this club & that’s how some fans act after a cou­ple of bad per­for­mances. #Dis­ap­pointed”.

Adams said: “We’ve spo­ken to them about it. “We’ve said to them that ide­ally they shouldn’t be get­ting in­volved in that type of thread.

“We take the plau­dits when things are go­ing well, and by the same to­ken you do get crit­i­cism and some­times you have to bite your lip. That ap­plies to dur­ing the game with sup­port­ers and af­ter­wards on so­cial me­dia.

“We ac­cept that so­cial me­dia is huge. But some­times you have to take it on the chin and try not to get in­volved.”
