Harry Redknapp reacts to Chris Brunt coin incident... West Brom fans agree

Chelsea v West Brom

The pundit was not impressed with the fan who threw a coin at the West Brom skipper.

Harry Redknapp feels the fan who threw a coin at West Brom captain Chris Brunt is 'cowardly' and should be banned from attending matches, according to BBC Football.

The Baggies lost 3-1 at Reading in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon.

And, with Brunt going over to the away fans at the end of the game, one supporter threw a coin that struck the skipper directly in the face.

Naturally, pundit Redknapp expressed his disapproval live on national television...

Redknapp told Match of the Day on Saturday evening: "It's cowardly, I hope they catch the culprit and ban him."

And the former Premier League boss certainly isn't alone.

Indeed, West Brom may have produced a very poor FA Cup display - which hasn't exactly helped what has been a dour season so far for fans - but the majority of supporters understand that violence and coin-throwing certainly isn't the answer.

Many West Brom fans have therefore taken to Twitter in support of Brunt and to agree with Redknapp.

As far as they are concerned, the cuplrit should very much be banned - and is no representative of West Bromwich Albion Football Club.
