Brum Fans Hit Out At Bruce

Brum Fans Hit Out At Bruce

Steve Bruce has insisted he intended no offence to Birmingham fans by waving to Manchester United supporters during the second half of the Carling Cup clash at St Andrews on Tuesday night.

Bruce was booed by a section of home followers after he acknowledged chants of 'Brucey, Brucey give us a wave' from United fans.

Blues were trailing 2-0 at the time in the quarter-final tie and Bruce has apologised in case his actions upset anyone. However he is adamant no slight was meant towards Blues supporters.

Bruce: 'If our supporters were offended, then I apologise. It was not a slight on them or our club. It was an instinctive thing and as soon as I put my hand up I thought to myself 'I shouldn't really have done that.'

'When I came back to St Andrews as manager of Sheffield United after playing for the Blues for two years, I did the same thing to the Birmingham fans.

'If people want to hang me for this, then that's up to them. But I think my commitment to Birmingham cannot be called into question.

'If anyone doubts my commitment and my feeling for this club, then they shouldn't. I think we all know what I put myself through in leaving Crystal Palace to come here as manager.

'Birmingham mean as much to me, if not more, than United. Remember, if you include my time as a player, I've spent six years here.

'I enjoyed my time here as a player but when you are the manager of a club, your attachment increases.'
