McIlroy, Poulter enjoy playful jabs on Twitter
After winning the Open Championship in July, Rory McIlroy announced to the crowd at Royal Liverpool that he appreciated the kindness of the fans, even though he was a supporter of Manchester United of the English Premier League.
On Saturday, it's safe to say he got a warmer reception at Old Trafford.
And after meeting some legendary names at the home of Man United, McIlroy got into a comical Twitter back-and-forth with Arsenal fan and fellow Ryder Cupper Ian Poulter.
Sorry @IanJamesPoulter you must be mistaken... this suit was only available with the claret jug!- Rory Mcilroy (@McIlroyRory) August 16, 2014
Yes them red socks. I thought Van Gaal was going to ask you to take off that suit and help your boys out. They needed it. @McIlroyRory- Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) August 16, 2014
You do realize they are the only trophies that will be paraded at Old Trafford this season. @McIlroyRory- Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) August 16, 2014
