Finn Russell hasn't exactly broken his silence since being sent away from the Scotland camp ahead of the Six Nations, but the fly-half did perhaps give a little insight after liking a few tweets on social media.

The 27-year-old's place at this year's championships is in serious doubt after a breach of discipline.

The manner of the offence is not yet known with Scottish Rugby releasing a statement saying only that he was "disciplined for a breach of team protocol".

Just a couple of hours after the decision was announced, Russell likes three tweets in quick succession.

The first two came from Racing 92 team-mate Simon Zebo. The Irish winger of French Martinique descent posted a .GIF which read "It wasn't me" and tagged the Scottish international.

He then followed it up with another saying: "Long Live white chocolate."

The most telling, perhaps, came from user @bruce_1314, who tagged Russell to tell him: "Nothing wrong with standing up for yourself."

Russell has made 46 appearances for his country.
