Striker Rooney left last season’s Ladbrokes Premiership runners-up on Thursday to join Salford for an undisclosed fee, with it reported that he will be earning £4,000-a-week.
And there was then a tetchy exchange on twitter between Holt, whose side won Sky Bet League Two last term, and Salford’s co-owner Neville.
Holt responded to a post that apparently made reference to the Rooney deal by posting a message including the line: “Who’s place in the football league is @GNev2 going to steal with this p**s take.”
Neville replied on his official account with a message that said: “Steal! I hope it’s yours now! 5 ex players have matched all investment with our co-owner to build a stadium, build a successful team in a city we love and invest in football. We’ve invested millions.
“You seem to want a franchise league where the established can’t be challenged!”
Holt replied with: “What’s you budget Gary? You’re buying your way in, that’s the word on the street.”
And after Neville then tweeted “they have players on a lot more money than ours…I bet he’s pumping money in to keep his club competing!! Come on tell us Mr Chairman?”, Holt wrote: “So far our net wage bill for league 1 next season is £932,000. That’s out of a budget of £1.1m Your turn Gary.”
Neville then wrote: “I don’t know. We don’t run our club right! Only poor little Accrington do!! We put a lot of money in and aren’t embarrassed about it
