Middlesbrough fans react on Twitter to Ritchie De Laet's performance against MK Dons

Middlesbrough have signed Ritchie De Laet on loan from Leicester City.

Middlesbrough fans are raving about Ritchie De Laet’s performance for them against Milton Keynes Dons last night.

De Laet was a January loan addition from Leicester City, and he has made a very encouraging start for Aitor Karanka’s side.

The Belgian came straight into Middlesbrough’s starting line-up against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend, and he continued to impress at stadium:mk last night.

Despite, De Laet’s impressive showing - Middlesbrough still could not pick up a victory against MK Dons.

Karanka’s men fell behind in the first half, but they fought back and scored a late equaliser through Jordan Rhodes.

It was De Laet’s cross which set-up the former Blackburn Rovers forward, and the full-back has taken much of the acclaim after the match.

Middlesbrough’s draw with MK Dons yesterday evening has elevated them above Hull City, and launched them to the top of the Championship table.
