Leeds fans are unimpressed by Millwall boss Harris’ comments on Marshall’s celebration

Neil Harris’ comments on Ben Marshall’s goal celebration in Millwall’s 3-2 loss against Leeds United have angered some Whites fans.

Ben Marshall’s celebration was a flashpoint in the weekend’s fiesty encounter between old rivals Leeds United and Millwall, after which the Whites came out 3-2 winners to get back into the Championship’s top two.

But Lions manager Neil Harris has moved to defend his player, saying that he didn’t do anything wrong as Leeds brace themselves for an FA charge because their fans threw missiles at him – according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Harris said: ““Is it common at Leeds? Do they get away with it? I don’t know. It’s not good in any football ground in any country. Marshy hasn’t left the field of play. He’s nowhere near the byline. He is eight to ten yards inside that.

“It is not acceptable in football grounds. It’s going to take a serious incident for it to happen and I’ve seen my players hit with various objects at the weekend. They are huge clubs. Do they get away with huge calls at this level? I believe so to a certain degree.”

But Harris’ comments have not gone down well with the Leeds United fans, who of course still remember the heavy punishment that came their way in the wake of the ‘Spygate’ scandal earlier on in the season.

It’s fair to say that Millwall’s own disciplinary record isn’t perfect either and Leeds fans were not shy about pointing that out…
