Hunt, who made his first Championship start of the season at Molineux following hip surgery, was "shocked" to hear his 64th minute substitution met with cheers from some fans.

He was also unimpressed with the negative chanting ahead of Bakary Sako's late equaliser, which handed second-bottom Wolves an important point as they fight for survival this season.

While Republic of Ireland international Hunt says the supporters can be "fantastic", the 31-year-old admits he felt embarrassed on Friday.

"I was shocked when they cheered me coming off," he told the Birmingham Mail. "Thanks for that lads. It was my first start in a long time.

"The fans can be fantastic but they can also be against us as well and that didn't help.

"I am not going to worry about what happened when I came off. It was more of a shock to me when I was sat there listening to them singing horrific songs.

"It is embarrassing, it is just embarrassing.

"They may boo me for saying that but I have always been honest.

"They can be fantastic as well so don't get me going all the one way here.

"But to be the way they were, to roll off five of six songs in a row of the calibre they did then they need to have a look at themselves."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
