Hull City have trimmed their squad after getting relegated from the Premier League and former Ireland international Alex Bruce is one of the casualties.

The defender joined Hull in 2012 but didn't make a single top flight appearance this season and was loaned out to Wigan Athletic in January. Bruce had told a fan on Twitter three days ago that he was set to leave the club this summer after his contract expired but it appears from his latest post that he wasn't given any formal confirmation.

After the club sent a tweet that said 'Alex Bruce heads a list of players who will leave Hull City once their contracts expire', the twice-capped Ireland international sent a brilliant sarcastic reply.

Shortly afterwards, Motherwell FC joined in and joked with Bruce about the apparent breakdown in communication.
