Luke Littler fires back at haters on Facebook after Premier League defeat

Luke Littler fires back at haters on Facebook after Premier League defeat

The teenage sensation isn't afraid to engage with fans and critics.

Luke Littler has responded to comments on Facebook after suffering another Premier League Darts defeat.

Littler's wait for a nightly win in the BetMGM Premier League continued on Thursday when he lost to Michael Smith in the Night Six semi-finals.

The 17-year-old sensation saw off Nathan Aspinall before losing 6-3 to Smith, who went on to lose to Luke Humphries in the final by the same scoreline.

Littler has failed to win any of the six night so far, reaching the semi-finals on four occasions and the final and quarter-finals once each.

Littler shot to prominence earlier this year when he reached the final of the Darts World Championship at Alexandra Palace.

His notoriety has earned him greater scrutiny when he performs below his best, but he has come up with a simple way of dealing with comments about his game.

The Warrington-born star is a member of several darts groups on Facebooks, and takes it upon himself to personally reply to comments about him.

One Facebook user posted: "I'm convinced that Luke Littler doesn't like these darts but that he's contractually obliged to use them," referencing Littler's decision to use different darts.

The teenager replied to the comment: "I've tried them for a few games, they have gone well [and] they have gone rubbish, so back to what I know best which is my Pixels."

Another fan on the page complained: "My post got removed because I said Luke [Littler] shook Smith's hand? Okay."

Littler replied: "They don't like me shaking hands then, what do they want me to do."

Despite not winning a night yet, Littler is third in the BetMGM Premier League table, one point behind Luke Humphries and level on points with Rob Cross.

He'll look to end his drought on Night Seven in Nottingham, where he will face Michael van Gerwen in the quarter-finals.
