Of course, Wednesday fans caught onto the video going viral, although many thought that was embarrassing, the Owls then published an article by the owner, stating his congratulations to rivals Sheffield United for their promotion to the Premier League but also hope to Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United get back in the Championship soon after they had relegation confirmed.

It read: “Few things in life unite and divide opinion like football. But one thing at this stage of every season is undebatable and I would like to offer the warm congratulations of everyone at Sheffield Wednesday to everyone at our neighbours Sheffield United for their achievement of promotion.

“We may be rivals but we are friends of the same city that holds such unique tradition in the football world. Recognition in the Premier League can only benefit Sheffield and we wish United well, whilst promising our loyal supporters that we will be giving our absolute best to ensure Wednesday will be tasting the same success this time next year.

“We must also congratulate Norwich City on their promotion and offer our commiserations to Ipswich Town, Bolton Wanderers and Rotherham United. We wish you a speedy return to the Championship.”

Wednesday fans were left far from happy.
