Manchester United have deleted a tweet that appeared to make light of the lack of fans in stadiums ahead of the Premier League clash against Newcastle.

Supporters have not been allowed to be present at the stadiums since Match due to the coronavirus outbreak, while now there are still concerns over plans to make a number of league games pay-per-view.

The Red Devils will travel to St James’ Park on Saturday evening, a stadium that is well-known for seating away supporters. And United’s official account tweeted on Saturday morning: “At least there’s no climbing up 14 flights of stairs to get to the away end at St James’ Park for this one… where are you watching #NEWMUN from?” along with a laughing face emoji.

Gary Neville was quick to react to the post, writing: “How bad is this tweet?”

Later, the post was deleted by United, however, it had already drawn some attention on social media.
