Lloyd Isgrove reacts on Twitter to Gaston Ramirez's superb performance v Wolves

The Southampton-owned forward scored twice v Wolves for loan club Middlesbrough.

Southampton youngster Lloyd Isgrove, currently on loan at Barnsley, was impressed by Gaston Ramirez's performance for Middlesbrough against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday night.

Indeed, the Uruguayan netted twice as Middlesbrough beat Wolves at the Riverside, producing a superb display that was the clear difference between the two sides.

And, after Ramirez's opening goal, the Saints youngster tweeted of the loanee:

Ramirez's form at Middlesbrough will certainly be making him popular at the Riverside Stadium. Should there be a potential deal to be struck in the summer, Southampton could be happy to let him join Boro full time.

That may depend on Middlesbrough getting promoted but the signs are good after their win over Wolves.

Aitor Karanka's men are once again top of the Championship table following Hull City's loss on Thursday night and they have Ramirez's double to thank.

Wolves stay on 43 points after their defeat, while Southampton host Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.
