Leroy – Claret and Hugh’s top columnist – was utterly appalled at the boo boys who abused the Hammers skipper and said: “You should be utterly ashamed – there’s no place in this game for people who boo their own players.”
He declared: “Here we were enjoying a brilliantly comfortable win and that breaks our – horrible.
We should have gone away at the end of the game feeling really happy and comfortable but I didn’t because of those ghastly fans who booed Nolan.
“Whatever anyone wants to think of him as a player is their decision but he is 100 per cent West Ham and has been since he got here and that makes me even more uncomfortable with what’s happened.
“So I want to call on all the decent fans – should that ever happen again – to cheer their heads off for the lad and drown out the abusers.
“This is a great great club and the vast majority of our fans are brilliant. We have always been recognised as a fair club and what happened to Kevin was very wrong so let all of the good guys put it right if such a horrible situation ever arises again.”
