Manchester United Forced To Delete Tweet After It Was Slammed By Gary Neville And Fans

Manchester United have deleted a tweet about their Premier League fixture against Newcastle United after it was furiously slammed by Gary Neville and fans.

The Red Devils appeared to make a joke about the lack of supporters in stadiums ahead of tonight's league meeting at St James' Park.

Fans have not been allowed to attend games in England due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Saturday morning, United tweeted: "At least there's no climbing up 14 flights of stairs to get to the away end at St James' Park for this one... where are you watching #NEWMUN from?"

The post, accompanied with a laughing face emoji, didn't go down too well with fans online, including former club captain Neville.

"The hardcore reds who'd be there today would give anything to climb those steps. Instead they face an unacceptable £15 for PPV...and being patronised in a sponsored tweet pretending to understand fan culture," he wrote.

Other United supporters also took offence to their club's now-deleted post.
