Within a couple of hour of having his comments on twitter about Brendan Rodgers shared across social media Steven Thompson has closed his ‘much loved’ twitter account Thommhawk9.
Despite being 150 miles away from Celtic Park and going through his usual thorough preparations for BBC Scotland’s coverage of the Aberdeen v Partick Thistle match Thommo found time to watch St Mirren losing 4-1.
Rodgers ? Saints should be proud but for me it’s a joke to say we are the best team he has faced domestically! 4-1! What about Dons or Gers

Taking exception to Brendan Rodgers claim that it had been Celtic’s toughest test the man with the state funded salary claimed that ‘Dons and Gers’ had presented the hoops with greater problems.
The extent of Thommo’s training ground know how seems to be an unfortunate incident in which Scotland star John McGinn suffered an industrial injury due to Thommo getting involved in some horseplay.
After being questioned about his view and asked to substantiate it Thommo has decided that social media isn’t for him.
Last week Rodgers challenged the views of Jason Cundy about Celtic with the talkSPORT host taking the criticism on the chin.
I guess those two incidents highlight the difference in attitudes between commercial operators and the cosy life inside the state broadcaster.
While he can close down his twitter account his employers, BBC Scotland maintain a news page detailing his £485,000 ‘tax free’ EBT from his three years playing for Rangers (IL).
