Noel Hunt argues with Leeds fan on Twitter, responds to Cellino criticism

The former Ipswich and Leeds striker couldn't help but respond to a follower on social media.

Noel Hunt couldn't help but hit back at a Leeds United fan on Twitter on Saturday afternoon after he reminded the striker of Massimo Cellino's criticism of him during his time at Elland Road.

Indeed, the 32-year-old forward was released by Leeds earlier this year after an unsuccessful spell with the Yorkshire side.

He joined Ipswich Town but has since also been released by the club this summer.

During the Republic of Ireland - Scotland clash, meanwhile, Hunt clashed with a Leeds fan on social media that started off as an innocent enough exchange.

The 32-year-old got defensive, however, when reminded Leeds owner Cellino didn't think much of his footballing ability. He hit back with the claim that he has reached the play-offs three times in seven years and also won the league.

The Whites most recently signed 21-year-old Lee Erwin up front and will be hoping the Scot can enjoy more success at Elland Road than Hunt did.

Plenty of other forwards have been hit and miss at Leeds of late, though, and goals - in general - have been short for the Yorkshire side.
