Leeds United fans were infuriated earlier this week by Sheffield United's promotion celebrations.

Blades players were seen singing songs mocking Leeds United, who they beat to automatic promotion.

Leeds sat in second with four games to go, before a late collapse let Sheffield United back in.


Days later Sheffield United announced their released and retained list, and Whites fans noted two players who were on it.

These were Martin Crainie and Paul Coutts, who were among the Sheffield United players mocking Leeds United.

Leeds fans took their moment to poke fun at the duo.

Leeds can still go up through the play-offs, and must overcome Derby County first over two legs.

The Whites would then face the winner out of Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion.

If they are victorious, they will have another shot at Sheffield United next season.

Chris Wilder the head
