Striker Matty Taylor has completed a move across the city to rivals Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.
The talented forward becomes the first player to move from Bristol Rovers to Bristol City in 30 years and it is a move that Rovers fans will not be happy with.
Since their rise through the leagues, Taylor has been a key player for Rovers scoring 73 goals in 125 appearances and will he will be sorely missed at the Memorial Ground.
Rovers’ loss is City’s gain and Bristol Rovers fans have already been quick to voice their opinions on the move on Twitter.
It’s fair to say it has not gone down well with the Rovers faithful on Twitter, and we’ve decided to take a look at some of the best reactions to the news.
So, here are some of the reactions of Bristol Rovers fans on social media after this major deal in Bristol…..

Unfollowed. Accept him wanting to leave, but cannot accept him going there.
