Chris Sutton delivered his verdict on Leeds sacking manager Paul Heckingbottom on Friday, and fans have flocked onto Twitter to respond.

Leeds sacked Heckingbottom after months of speculation on Friday lunchtime, with the official announcement coming on their Twitter page at midday.

The BT Sport pundit delivered his Twitter verdict shortly afterwards, saying that you had to feel sorry for Heckingbottom after being given just 16 games to turn things around.

He risked the ire of the fans by saying that the club had been “rudderless” for years and that maybe the men at the top were the real problem.

That got the backs up of some fans, who pointed to Heckingbottom’s record at Leeds.

Most fans had been in favour of him getting sacked and one added that this was why Sutton was just a pundit for Scottish football.

Another fan said it was crazy giving him the job in the first place after his terrible record in the Championship with Barnsley.

Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans to the comments from Sutton:
