Around 200 City supporters - many of whom carried banners - chanted their disapproval of Tan's policies as the Premier League new boys continue to struggle off the pitch.

The Malaysian bought a controlling share in the Welsh club back in 2010 and has become a figure of controversy since, notably when he announced the club would be changing its colours from blue to red.

In October, Tan sacked head of recruitment Iain Moody without consulting Mackay and last week issued an ultimatum that unless the Scot himself quit his job, he would be shown the door.

Mackay's exit was avoided thanks to the intervention of chairman Mehmet Dalman but with further crisis talks between Tan and Mackay due next week, a significant section of the Cardiff support convened to chant 'Tan Out.'

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
