Alan Shearer rapidly shut down a Twitter troll last night

Alan Shearer watched the Champions League semi-final between Manchester City and Real Madrid last night and, like many viewers, he wasn’t too thrilled by the cautious game that unfolded between the two.

So much so, he sent a snarky tweet wondering when the game was going to actually kick off.

Twitter being Twitter, it wasn’t long before someone responded with some abuse.

The former Newcastle star wasn’t bothered by being asked how many big games he played in, responding: “Football matches at the highest level or boring matches? Let me think....701 and 8”.

Unsurprisingly, his fans loved it.

Although one had another burning question he wants answered.
