Wood's Burnley lose to former club Leeds

It came after they made the move from the Championship leaders to the Premier League club this summer, with Wood joining Burnley for £15million and Taylor costing a compensation fee of around £7million.

Now while it's debatable if it's okay that clubs are willing to sell their history for a few quid, this is modern football and modern football says that if you can make money doing something, go for it.

The company had taken to Twitter on behalf of Leeds fans to post a message, containing a middle finger gesture emoji, aimed at the ex-Whites pair after Leeds secured a penalty shootout victory over Burnley at Turf Moor on Tuesday.

After Burnley took offence to the tweet, a spokesperson for the betting firm said: "They were very poorly conceived tweets which have since been deleted".

Ladbrokes, who are the club's United Kingdom betting partner and sponsor a stand at Turf Moor, told BBC Sport: "They were very poorly conceived tweets which we have since deleted".

However, Burnley fans were upset with the tweet, and while it might be seen as a bit of harmless trolling, Ladbrokes was forced to apologize to both Burnley fans and Burnley FC for the tweet.

In the end the visitors prevailed 5-3, but many fans took to social media to criticise the performance of Borthwick-Jackson.

Wood came on as a second half substitute and scored from the spot to tie the game up in the 89th minute. Twenty-odd million they've made for a club [in transfer fees] and they get slaughtered.

Those two have been fantastic servants to Leeds, if I'm honest.
