Ex-Aston Villa player Albert Adomah reacts hilariously to being booed by Birmingham fans as he came on as a sub for QPR on Friday night.
He came onto the pitch as a second half substitute in the goalless Championship draw at St Andrew’s, replacing Paul Smyth with 25 minutes left on the clock.
Blues fans chanted ‘Who are ya?’ as his name was read out on the tannoy along with several other songs relating to the Second City rivalry.
Adomah then pointed to the name on the back of his shirt and flashed a cheeky grin, but he also put a video of the moment onto his social media.
Adomah is currently in his fourth season at Queens Park Rangers, but remains a fan favourite with Villa having spent three years there.
He netted 22 times in 125 games for the West Midlands outfit and started the play-off final win against Derby County before moving to Nottingham Forest.

As mentioned, the game finished in a 0-0 draw, but the away side had Sam Field to thank for an incredible goal-line clearance, which even left him impressed.
Field hooked the ball away from the line after Steve Cook had deflected a cross over his own goalkeeper Asmir Begovic with that being one of the best chances of the game.
Credit also goes to Begovic and Blues goalkeeper John Ruddy, both age 36, putting in outstanding individual performances, with a string of saves as the hosts missed the chance to climb into the top six.
Blues (4-2-3-1): John Ruddy, Cody Drameh, Dion Sanderson (Captain), Kevin Long, Lee Buchanan, Krystian Bielik, Juninho Bacuna, Koji Miyoshi (Siriki Dembele 71), Jay Stansfield, Keshi Anderson (Oliver Burke 43), Scott Hogan (Lukas Jutkiewicz 71).
Substitutes not used: Neil Etheridge, Emanuel Aiwu, Emmanuel Longelo, Ivan Sunjic, Gary Gardner, Jordan James,.
Bookings: Bacuna 54, Sanderson 67, Stansfield 90.
Queens Park Rangers (3-4-2-1): Asmir Begovic, Osman Kakay, Steve Cook, Morgan Fox, Paul Smyth (Albert Adomah 64), Andre Dozzell, Sam Field, Kenneth Paal, Lyndon Dykes, Ilias Chair, Sinclair Armstrong.
Substitutes not used: Joe Walsh, Jake Clarke-Salter, Chris Willock, Elijah Dixon-Bonner, Ziyad Larkeche, Charlie Kelman, Stephen Duke-McKenna, Rayan Kolli.
Bookings: Field 45, Smyth 61.
Referee: Matthew Donohue.
Birmingham boss John Eustace said post-match: “It was a tough game. We are delighted with a point in the end. We had a couple of good chances that could have won us the game for sure but John Ruddy has also made a fantastic save near the end there as well.
“So, on the back of two defeats and real tough away games, to come and play under the lights today at St. Andrew’s it was important we still showed that level of commitment and enthusiasm. I thought the lads worked their socks off tonight and it was all about the squad.
“I am disappointed we didn’t win the game, but happy we didn’t lose it.
“You can feel the buzz and the excitement when you walk from the tunnel onto the pitch. The fans were outstanding tonight and they really kept behind the group.
“We want to make this a really difficult place to come to. Being unbeaten here at St. Andrew’s is very important.”
QPR’s Gareth Ainsworth told www.qpr.co.uk: “I’m really happy to be taking a point away from Birmingham.
“They’ve started the season well under John Eustace and I’ve no doubt they’re going to take a lot points from teams here this season.
“We fought as a group but also played some really nice football. I’m really proud of the boys.
“Sam Field was unbelievable today.
“And Asmir kept us in it with a couple of sensational saves. That’s why I signed him; he’s such a humble guy and he’s a world-class goalkeeper.
“There are real signs of progress.
“People made their opinions of QPR before a ball was even kicked this season but I’m confident we’re going to prove people wrong.
“We’ve just played three games in six days so you have to give credit to the players. They looked fit and they looked strong.
“Now we’ll rest up and be raring to go again next weekend against Coventry.”
