The girlfriend of Sunderland fullback Phil Bardsley has branded manager Paolo di Canio a "drama queen".

The Daily Mail says Tanya Robinson took to Twitter to slam the Black Cats boss.

The Bardsley and Matthew Kilgallon were dropped for the Spurs game after they were both photographed in a casino celebrating after Wigan's defeat at Arsenal on Tuesday, which guaranteed Sunderland's Premier League survival.

Bardsley was pictured on the floor surrounded by £50 notes and two players are understood to have sought guidance from the PFA about whether they can be fined.

Robinson said in a tweet: "He's not raped or killed any1 (sic) so certain people need to stop being psycho drama queens."
