Rangers & Sunderland Posts Seem to Unearth Michael Beale Burner Account in Bizarre Update

Michael Beale’s managerial history has taken a peculiar twist with the emergence of controversial social media posts related to his time at Rangers and Sunderland.

The Englishman faced the axe at Sunderland on Monday (19 February) following a brief tenure of just 12 games. This move came merely two and a half months after his dismissal from Ibrox, where he faced a tumultuous start to the season.

Recent revelations suggest that Beale might have been behind Twitter messages supporting himself during his recent coaching roles. The messages were allegedly posted through a now-deleted account associated with his business, Player ID.

The Second Tier podcast, giving credit to the Walk The Falk Podcast for its research, posted a Twitter thread on 20 February. This thread reportedly presented evidence linking Beale to the Player ID account. It also highlighted posts defending his actions, such as refusing to shake Trai Hume’s hand after substituting the Sunderland player during a match against Birmingham. Beale later apologized for this incident. Additionally, the thread shed light on his controversial departure from Ibrox.

Notably, the Player ID account apparently reposted a message criticizing Sunderland for their decision to sack Beale, accusing the club of “self entitlement.”
