Bruce jokes about Hull release by insisting he found out about it on TWITTER

Date Posted,May 24, 2017

Finding out that you are being released is one of the worst feelings in football.

So, just imagine how it would feel if you found out you were being let go… on TWITTER!

Well, that’s what appeared to happen to Alex Bruce this week, when he posted a comical response to Hull’s post about players leaving the club.

Bruce’s five-year stint at the KCOM Stadium is coming to an end following the end of his contract.

But when Hull tweeted the news, Bruce responded: “Thanks for letting me know!! All the best.”

Fear not, Bruce did know that he was going to be leaving Hull at the end of June.

He had spent the back end of the season on loan at Wigan Athletic and had announced just three days ago that he was going to be leaving Humberside for good.

“My time at Hull is up when my contract finishes in a few weeks,” he said in response to a fan’s query.

The light-hearted banter continued as Scottish Premiership side Motherwell replied to Bruce’s tweet about his release.

They tweeted: “We’re pleased to announce the signing of @AlexBruce84 on a 9-year deal. Sorry, we also forgot to tell you Alex!!”

Bruce responded with “See you in Pre Season!”

Following his tweet, Bruce was thanked for the memories by the official Twitter account – a sentiment that he retweeted and shared for his own followers.

The 32-year-old won promotion to the Premier League twice with Hull as well as helping them to the FA Cup final.

He is yet to officially sign for anyone next season.
