Wednesday night was a horror night for Shane Duffy. The Irishman scored two own-goals inside the opening 20 minutes, and then picked up two yellow cards in the second half of the match to cap off a dreadful evening with a sending off.

Supposedly Duffy has been angling for a move away from Ewood Park this transfer window, having rejected the offer of a new contract from Rovers.

According to The Daily Mail, fellow Championship side Brighton have had an offer of £4 million accepted for the player, and Duffy will be allowed to leave. 

The centre-back did not help his reputation among Blackburn fans on Wednesday night, after appearing to re-emerge from the dressing room after half-time without a black armband round his sleeve.

The Blackburn team had donned the armbands as a sign of respect to mark the 16th anniversary of the death of former owner Jack Walker. 

With the player supposedly on the verge of leaving Blackburn, let's take a look back at the Twitter reaction to Duffy's nightmare performance on Wednesday.

Your wish may be coming true, Bryn. 

And finally, the most positive tweet that could be expected given the circumstances.
