Alan Shearer hits back at ‘f***ing idiots’ as he reveals what Sheff Utd fans did to him during Newcastle mauling | The Sun
ALAN SHEARER has praised Sheffield United fans despite receiving abuse during Newcastle's 8-0 win at Bramall Lane.
The Toon legend watched the match from a friend's hospitality box – amongst the home fans.
So when he began cheering the first of Newcastle's eight goals, he was targeted with rude gestures from the Blades fans.
Shearer, 53, saw the funny side and shared his admiration for the supporters who stayed until the end – stating he would not have done the same.
He told The Rest Is Football podcast: "Unbelievable. Eight different scorers, brilliant atmosphere, it was great to be with my pals as a fan for once. I was getting a bit of grief because we were in a pal's box in the Sheffield United fans when I was stood up clapping when we scored.
"I don't know what it was but the fans kept doing that [putting two fingers up] to me. I thought they were saying it was 2-2, but I kept saying it was 8-0 you f***ing idiots. I have to say the Sheffield United fans were amazing.

"If that was me and my team, I'd have left long before the final whistle, but there were thousands of fans that stayed. It was a tough afternoon for the Sheffield United fans."
Shearer has not held back from criticising fan behaviour this week after blasting his son's antics in Milan.
Will Shearer, 23, travelled to Italy with his pals to watch Newcastle draw 0-0 with the Magpies, but his dad was not happy he gathered outside AC Milan's team hotel – wearing his Newcastle shirt in front of hundreds of home fans.
