Former Leeds United teammates have offered support to Robbie Rodgers after he admitted he was gay on Friday.

"Full respect to @robbierogers and good luck in the next chapter of your life whatever you choose to do," wrote full-back Adam Drury

Striker Ross McCormack added: "Wow... Fair play to @robbierogers for coming out. Must of took great courage!!! Take care mate and stay strong!"

Midfielder Zac Thompson, out on loan at Bury, added: "A lot of respect for @robbierogers Good luck in what ever you choose to do next mate. All the best".
