The former Hearts player was the centre of attention after his introduction on to the pitch and the Hibs fans reacted furiously to some later gesturing from the Czech attacker, who had what looked like a perfectly good late goal chalked off by the linesman for offside.

"We said to them to not get involved in anything." Fenlon said "It's about playing football matches and winning games. The best answer for anybody is to go and win the game."

The match represents an incredible turnaround for Hibs - it is the first time they have played United since being badly beaten 3-0 on the opening day of the season.

"I certainly didn't think after Tannadice that we'd be sitting here, today, top of the league." Fenlon said.

"That is great credit to the players. They knew they didn't work hard that day, but they've rolled their sleeves up and worked hard to get better.

"I thought it was a complete performance today. We were superb in the first half and in the second half we had to defend, football is about doing both."

"It shows we've come a long way."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
