He raged: “It’s dis­gust­ing. It’s ob­scene. He’s got pres­sure to deal with, but what does he do re­ally?

“I used to think foot­ball was a work­ing class game. Then Sky Sports came along and ev­ery­thing changed.”

Hill be­came an un­likely celebrity last year when a video of him taunt­ing ri­val fans at a foot­ball match spread across the in­ter­net like wild­fire.
