Ryan McLaughlin is a young player owned by Liverpool but out on loan to Scottish side Aberdeen. The 20-year-old made his debut for his new club on Wednesday, and like most modern day athletes took to Twitter to express his joy.
Good to make my debut last night. Thanks for the messages. Another win also pic.twitter.com/pxHHTAqVjb— Ryan McLaughlin (@RyanMcL2) September 16, 2015
Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler responded to his celebratory tweet with a funny jab at the youngster which sparked a hilarious back and forth battle of comedy.
