Snodgrass reacted on Twitter after the broadcaster tweeted a story about the former Scotland international and team-mate Andy Carroll.

They wrote that Snodgrass swore at UK Anti-Doping officials before later claiming it was a sense of mistaken identity because Carrroll also has a "northern accent".

The tweet accompanying the article link read: "West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass swore at UK Anti-Doping officials before later saying that it was maybe Andy Carroll because he also speaks with a northern accent."

Snodgrass responded by accusing Sky of fabricating the details of the story and threatening to cancel his Sky Sports subscription.

He wrote: "Sky your looking for a bite...... I ain’t giving you it! The way you wrote this is sloppy and isn’t the truth. The season must be finished and clutching for stories.... disappointing! Think I might cancel my sports channels now."
