Bolton drop Madine for indiscipline but Lennon still comes off worst on Twitter

Bolton Wanderers striker Gary Madine was dropped for alleged indiscipline against Birmingham City, but Neil Lennon came off worst on Twitter.

Some things are inevitable in football: Like Messi scoring against Arsenal, Neil Warnock signing Paddy Kenny and trouble finding Gary Madine.

The Bolton striker was dropped for Tuesday's 1-0 defeat against Birmingham City after allegedly swearing at manager Neil Lennon, per the Daily Mail, following Saturday's 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers.

Madine arrived at the Macron Stadium last summer with a bad-boy reputation, having served five months for affray while at previous club Sheffield Wednesday and been convicted for causing actual bodily harm - for which he received 250 hours of unpaid work - during his Carlisle United days.

This wouldn't be the first time Madine and Lennon have exchanged verbals, after the 25-year-old was caught shouting at the former Celtic boss by television cameras covering November's game against Brentford.

And much like his off-field antics, Madine's performances have also split opinion among the Burnden faithful, with just five goals arriving in 27 Championship appearances.

With Bolton seven points adrift of safety in 23rd, the Geordie's latest outburst was the final straw for some on Twitter, although Lennon still seems to come off worst!
