Word on the Tweet: Ferdinand hails 'legend' Giggs & Barton becomes even more French

Also, Sunderland striker Louis Saha can't understand the popularity of the Gangnam Style as Wayne Rooney settles down to watch a popular musical with his son
Despite Wednesday being a busy night of action in the Premier League, our favourite players have not held back on tweeting their thoughts and feelings.

Rio Ferdinand hails Ryan Giggs as he gets another a year older whilst Joey Barton is turning more French by the day, all in Thursday's edition of Word on the Tweet.

"Ryan Giggs 39 today.... The word #Legend is banded about far to often....fits this fella like a glove though for his service to football!"

Rio Ferdinand describes Ryan Giggs as a "legend" and WOTT can’t argue with him on the Welshman’s 39th Birthday. What a player he has been.

"All my tweets for the foreseeable future to be read in a French accent. Thank you for your cooperation in advance..."

After abandoning his Scouse roots this week in a press conference, WOTT favourite Joey Barton is now demanding all his tweets by read in a French accent.



"Now I know that im weird and not funny cause i cant get the buzz around the #GangnamStyle #toooldschool."

"Very happy for scoring over 300 goals! It would not have been possible without the help of the teammates, the fans and the club."

"Massive win!!! we had to dig deep in the 2nd half lads showed great character, wonder if ill get assist for their goal lol."
