The best Shane Duffy own goals jokes as Blackburn defender scores 3 in 2 games

Unwanted brace at Cardiff makes it three in just 47 minutes of football for Irishman.

Two more Shane Duffy own goals against Cardiff led to jokes

These were the best Shane Duffy own goals jokes as the Blackburn Rovers centre-back made it three in two games.

On Saturday the Ireland international rounded off a 3-0 defeat at Wigan Athletic with an own-goal in the 63rd minute.

He followed this with two more inside the first twenty minutes of last night’s 2-1 defeat at Cardiff and was later sent off in stoppage time.

Incredibly, this means he managed to score a hat-trick of own goals in just 47 minutes of football.

Duffy also rejected the offer of a new contract yesterday, but this now seems something of a sideshow.

Needless to say, the Shane Duffy own goals jokes were flying:

If Cardiff get a penalty will they let Shane Duffy take it for his hattrick?

You've got to hand it to Shane Duffy, a very novel way of handing in a transfer request…

Shane Duffy. Rejects a new contact, deletes his Twitter account, scores two own goals in four days. The gift that keeps on giving.

Has Shane Duffy employed Jonathan Woodgate in some sort of mentoring capacity?

I've despised Shane Duffy since he offered me out at Scunthorpe 5 years ago, shame he binned 2 oggys and got himself sent off #baddickhead
