The presenter expressed his frustration with supporters after play was stopped three times due to trouble in the away end

Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling hit out at a section of West Bromwich Albion supporters for causing crowd trouble in the away end during their side’s game against Millwall on Saturday (January 29).

Play had to be stopped on three occasions during the match when flares were thrown onto the pitch from the away end during Valerien Ismael’s side’s 2-0 defeat at The Den.

Expressing his frustration with the fans’ behaviour on Gillette Soccer Saturday, Stelling said: “Just stop it, if you can’t tolerate your side losing, you’re not a football fan.

“Don’t go to games, you’re idiots, just stop it - it’s ridiculous and we’ve seen several incidents of it today as well.

“We can’t afford to go back to the bad old days can we. where things like this happened all the time.”
