This morning news broke that left-back Stephen Warnock signed for Derby County from Leeds United on an undisclosed fee. While recent reports have shown that Warnock wasn't offered a new contract at Elland Road, many at the club are sad to the Englishman take his career elsewhere.

In what characteristically defines the age of social media, media members, players, and fans sent out messages on Twitter regarding the move. They ranged from emotions of sorrow, to expressions of gratitude, to dismay at Cellino for allowing such a transfer to go down. Below are a few of the gut reactions that were posted.

Praise

Mixed Feelings

Anger at Cellino

The Man Himself

While Twitter served as a sounding board for the dejected and bitter Leeds fans, the fact of the matter is the club has to move onwards and face the match against Birmingham head on. Warnock will be dearly missed, but he has moved on from his time at Leeds and others will fill the void he has left.

Charlie Taylor has filled in admirably in the past two games and he now has the opportunity to make the left-back spot his for the remainder of the campaign. Also, early talk suggests that Liam Cooper will now don the captains armband, but an official announcement still awaits.
