‘A disgrace’ ‘Over the top’ – Millwall boss Neil Harris slams Leeds United’s celebrations

Millwall boss Neil Harris has branded the celebrations of Leeds United’s late equaliser “a disgrace”.

It looked as though the Whites were about to lose their first game of the season, but a stoppage time goal from Jack Harrison saw the Leeds celebrations directed at Harris and his coaching staff.

Millwall Supporters’ Club’s Twitter account tweeted to the EFL complaining about Saiz after he ran towards the touchline to celebrate.

It read: Dear @EFL @SkyBetChamp, what are the sanctions for Saiz who ran the length of the field to entice Neil Harris and David Livermore when Leeds scored?

Before the equaliser, there was a bust-up between the two benches, after the game Harris admitted that his backroom staff did deliberately held on to the ball longer than they should have done.

At the final whistle, it is said there were further confrontations.

Bielsa apologised for his behaviour, which was acknowledged by the Millwall boss, but still slammed the celebrations.

Harris said: “I think Marcelo has already apologised in the press for his bench. And I’ve already stated that my staff could’ve given the ball back slightly quicker, make it more accessible to get the ball.

“But their reaction to the goal is completely over the top and a disgrace in English football.”

Both managers ended up talking it out as you can see in the photo below…

The heated moments certainly caused a stir between both sets of supporters, there was also mocking from Leeds fans directed at Millwall Supporters Club for wanting Saiz sanctioned – check out those tweets on the next page.
