Irish Club Sligo Rovers Make Contract Announcement By Editing Coleen Rooney/Rebekah Vardy Row

Irish Club Sligo Rovers Make Contract Announcement By Editing Coleen Rooney/Rebekah Vardy Row

If you were living under a rock on Wednesday, then you'll have missed Rebekah Vardy denying Coleen Rooney's extraordinary claims that she's been selling stories about her to The Sun.

It all kicked off when Rooney posted a statement on social media.

The 33-year-old said she had been planting fake information about her life on Instagram, only to see the stories end up in the tabloid newspaper.

Coleen went on to claim that she blocked users on her private account, and that only Rebekah Vardy's account had viewed the stories.

"This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it......"

It didn't take long for Vardy to deny the claim.

We haven't heard much since from the pair but millions of users reacted to the story on a day labelled "the best in Twitter history".

A number of hours after the posts went viral, Irish club Sligo Rovers decided to join in with the jokes.

They announced that striker Ronan Coughlan had signed a new contract with the Premier Division club.

Coughlan, who has scored eight league goals this season, looked thrilled to be extending his stay at The Showgrounds but it was the way Sligo used the Rooney/Vardy references in the "amazing" Twitter post that grabbed people's attention.

"This has been a burden in our life for a few hours now and finally we have got to the bottom of it......"

It was branded a 'first class announcement" by one Twitter user, and received thousands of likes and RT's.
