Rio Ferdinand slates Manchester City's fans on Twitter

Former Manchester United defender questioned Manchester City's support.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand hit out at Manchester City last night, during their 1-1 draw with Roma.

The QPR centre-back homed in on the empty seats at the Etihad Stadium, using his Twitter feed to take a pop at his former rivals.

The official attendance at the stadium was 46,000, although visually, empty sections made it seem as though it could be lower.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini did not cite the crowd as a reason for the draw, stating after the game:

"If there is a great atmosphere it's always better for the team. But I don't think that was important."
