He said, as quoted by The Star: “The stewards came round and said to me ‘sit down or you will be escorted out’. I was really surprised because everyone around me was standing up so why was I any different?
“I walked over to speak to him later and told him, with everything that’s going on with Bury and Bolton at the moment, that football fans should be pulling together.”

He revealed his shock at noticing his wife getting dragged out by the neck, many other fans backed up that she was treated roughly.
“If I have done something wrong then I will hold my hands up, but to act like this towards a woman is disgusting, I have never seen anything like it,” he said.
“I was gobsmacked. She’s still very shaken up about it and it could have really hurt her and it just gives me more bad press.
“We travel home and away with Sheffield Wednesday and England and we never have a problem. I can’t explain the rhyme or reason for their actions.
“I don’t go anywhere to cause trouble, I just want to have a laugh. I’m a football person and not a trouble maker.”
