Norwich striker Holt: Twitter is there to wind-up opposition fans!

Norwich City captain Grant Holt had no problem with the jeers from Swansea City fans during victory on Saturday.

The Canaries captain wound up Swans fans before the game by tweeting: "Good team, nice ground, shame there (sic) Welsh."

He insisted: "I loved every minute of it.

"I'm never popular anywhere I go but I like that. I love getting abuse, I really do.

"One of my old managers, Steve Parkin, always used to tell me that the reason rival fans shout at me is because I'm doing something right.

"I want to get abuse every week. I'm big enough and old enough to take it.

"I love winding up fans on Twitter. That's what it's there for.

"People can write what they want. If people want to give me stick on there, that's fine - as long as they don't mind getting some back!"
