London:

Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand deleted his Twitter account on Sunday following his angry reaction to claims he had withdrawn from the England squad with a sore throat.

Bertrand was furious to be criticised when he was actually suffering from a viral infection which prevented him playing any part in Friday's World Cup qualifier with San Marino and earlier on Sunday also ruled him out of Tuesday's clash with Poland in Warsaw.

Questioned about his commitment to England, the left-back last week wrote on Twitter: "Just to clarify. Its not a "sore throat" I'm ill. swollen glands in my neck. And constant headache for 3 days now and freezing cold.

"Do you think a "sorethroat" could stop me being apart of a match for my club or country? your nuts. this is what every boy dreams of." ( Related read: Lampard, Betrand will not play vs Poland)

Bertrand's outburst came just days after his Chelsea and England team-mate Ashley Cole was charged by the Football Association after labelling the organisation "a bunch of twats" in another Twitter incident.

And, although he later apologised for his language and hasn't been charged by the FA, Bertrand has clearly decided his presence on the social networking site was too much trouble.
