Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling says he's leaving social media.

The 18-year-old had a substantial following on Twitter but decided to delete his @sterling31 account earlier this year.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: "I've deleted my Twitter and Facebook, and come off BBM.

"I just need to get my head down, really, and concentrate on my football, start scoring goals, stuff like that.

"I'm going to be more and more professional.

"I won't be back on there. Me and Twitter are finished!"
