Leeds United supporters on Twitter have slated Sky Sports pundit Keith Andrews for his comments on the club and the recent 'Spygate' scandal. 

Prior to Leeds' win against Derby County in the Championship on Friday night, Marcelo Bielsa admitted to Sky Sports that he did send someone to spy on Frank Lampard's side training.  

The news and subsequent admission to 'Spygate' drew criticism from certain quarters of the media, while others felt that no rules were broken in the incident.

 

Former Republic of Ireland midfielder Andrews told Sky Sports after Bielsa's interview that the whole spying incident was 'disgusting' and 'immoral'. 

The Elland Road faithful on Twitter didn't take too kindly to his comments as they issued a number of responses to his strongly-worded criticism. 

One Leeds supporter on social media felt that Andrews, a former West Brom midfielder, was 'embarrassing himself' with his comments.

When airing his views on 'Spygate', Andrews stated that Bielsa 'should be punished' for the incident as one fan pointed out that you cannot be punished for something where you haven't actually broken the laws.

The Whites went on to win the Championship showdown 2-0 in Yorkshire, with Kemar Roofe and Jack Harrison finding the back of the net on either side of the half. 

As a result, Bielsa's side are now four points clear of third-placed Norwich City in the table and a further 13 points ahead of seventh-placed Bristol City.
