Fearless Robbie Savage responds to John Terry’s biting criticism with mannerly tweet

He must be getting soft

‘Either I’m too sensitive or else I’m getting soft.’

We’re not sure if Robbie Savage is a Bob Dylan fan, but if he ever sees John Terry on the street, then it seems he will be perfectly happy to say hello despite the Chelsea man sticking the boot into the TV pundit this afternoon.

Savage was critical of the Terry earlier this week, and has been all season, amid the deepening crisis at the Premier League champions and their fairly anemic defence of their title.

And today finally the Chelsea captain hit back at the ex-Wales international with an acerbic put down.

It seemed a bit odd that Terry would be so disturbed by criticism considering that he is often abused by rival supporters across England on an almost weekly basis.

Savage may not be Terry Wogan smooth on the telly, but we’ve argued that to criticise the former Derby County man for his efforts on the pitch are wide of the mark.

We were expecting a fairly tasty war of words over the coming days, but it seems that Savage has decided that discretion is the better part of valour and decided to scramble to the high moral ground with his Twitter response this evening

What’s the odds on Savage blasting the centre-half again at the weekend?

High if this later tweet is anything to go by
