While the use of mobile phones has been severely restricted by the likes of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, at Championship side Rotherham the policy seems to be a little bit more loose.

On Saturday, striker Peter Odemwingie was sent off in the Millers’ 2-1 defeat against Leeds, only for the Nigerian to Tweet an apology while the game was still going on.


Odemwingie saw red just before the half-hour mark, after appearing to elbow Liam Cooper. Then, after his early bath, the Nigerian took to Twitter to say sorry for the incident…

Despite the Tweets, the video evidence doesn’t do Odemwingie any favours…

The defeat at home to Leeds leaves Rotherham 11 points from safety, with only one win in the league all season.
