That may be the case after the BBC Scotland pundit’s account vanished this afternoon after he debated with fans on the Celtic manager’s praise of his old team St Mirren.
The Hoops boss said the Buddies are the best team his side have faced this season despite the 4-1 scoreline when the teams met in the Scottish Cup quarter finals at Celtic Park yesterday afternoon.
Thompson took to Twitter to share his belief that Rodgers’ comments were a joke, asking how a team bottom of the Championship could possibly have been more of a challenge than Rangers, Aberdeen or any other team in the Premiership.
But judging by the reaction from some Celtic fans, he should have been accepting Rodgers’ comments as praise at a time when they really need it to get out of the relegation place:
Thompson, like pretty much every pundit covering Scottish football, will be no stranger to stick from fans, but is the amount sent his way today the reason he’s now no longer on Twitter?
Usually, that message is displayed if the account has been shut down by the user – so almost certainly rules out any possibility of Thompson being suspended or removed by Twitter.
Hopefully he does make a return to the social media site and continues to give his view on the Scottish game as it’s all about different opinions – regardless of whether or not you agree.
