Millwall fans boo players taking the knee before match against Derby County

Some Millwall fans booed the players taking a knee before the club’s match against Derby. When both sets of players made the now customary anti-racism gesture, there were audible jeers from the stands, where there were supporters for the first time in almost nine months. The reaction from some Millwall fans had been anticipated before the match, with the players and management confirming they would continue taking the knee regardless.

    Always heard stories about Millwall fans growing up in the 90s and assumed they were dickheads….. It's nice to be proven wrong sometimes. 👍👏👏

    Why can't footballers follow the example set by many Rugby players. Just refuse to bend the knee.

    Irrelevant bunch of lower class plebs. They don't even know what they're booing. They can just about string a sentence together, if you've ever had the displeasure of meeting any of these losers.

    Why did the Guardian leave the comments section open? What were they thinking letting the general population express their views. Biggest own goal of the week.

    Millwall. A horrible club, supported by horrible people. Glad they lost.
