Ex-Sunderland man Noble faces Carlisle punishment

Have your say

FORMER Sunderland reserve Liam Noble is expected to be disciplined by Carlisle United over comments made on Twitter about the Black Cats.

The 20-year-old from Cramlington got involved in a deteriorating interaction with Sunderland fans yesterday after posting: “Sunderland was great until I signed a pro-contract.

“Only one club gave me a shot at pro-football. Many thanks to everyone at Carlisle United. Great club, great fans.”

More exchanges followed between the midfielder and unimpressed Sunderland fans culminating in Noble tweeting: “Not bitter at all about leaving Sunderland! **** club, **** fans! Hope to see you’s soon. Maybe give us a derby next year. Haha.”

Sunderland Football Club have been made aware of the comments but will not be officially commenting.

Carlisle, though, are angry about the incident and are looking to take disciplinary action this week.
