Leeds 26-year-old destroyed by fans posts response on Twitter
By Harry Sykes
Stuart Dallas has delivered an upbeat Twitter message after being heavily criticised by supporters following Leeds United’s final match of the season.
The left-winger, 26, was recalled to the starting XI by manager Garry Monk following Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Wigan at the DW Stadium.
But the Northern Ireland international made little impact and supporters destroyed him on social media, with many claiming he should be sold this summer.
Nevertheless, Dallas refused to be rattled and took to his personal Twitter account on Sunday night to thank the fans for their “incredible support”.
The wide man also promised that Leeds’ players would learn from their nearly-but-not-quite campaign and “come back stronger next season”.

Dallas, who has a year remaining on the contract that he signed when he joined from Brentford in the summer of 2015, has had a mixed season for Leeds.
He has scored three goals and supplied three assists from 35 matches in all competitions and has struggled to be a regular starter in the second half of the campaign.
In other Leeds United news, it can be exclusively revealed that the club registered a new signing last month.
