Leeds United fans respond to Tom Cairney’s criticism

A handful of Leeds United fans have brandished Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney “bitter” after he slammed the travelling support following Tuesday’s Championship match at Craven Cottage.

Cairney was once a member of the Whites’ academy, but he ended up finishing his youth development Hull City before making a first-team debut in 2009.

During the midweek match, the midfielder looked to be on the losing side as Leeds had a slender 1-0 lead thanks to an own goal from Tim Ream.

However, Cairney stepped up in the 95th minute of injury time to claim an equaliser, restricting Leeds to just one point.

After the game, the 26-year-old responded to claims on social media that his family were being verbally abused by Leeds supporters.

Some fans have had their say on Twitter, hitting back at the Fulham forward for his strong criticism of the away support at Craven Cottage.

Plenty have accused Cairney of tainting the whole fanbase when it may have been a select few that were guilty of the unacceptable abuse.
