West Ham United winger Robert Snodgrass has compared his club’s fans to those of Scottish clubs Celtic and Rangers.
Snodgrass will definitely be keeping tabs on the Old Firm derby this weekend as he is a childhood fan of Celtic.
He told the West Ham official website that he “definitely” sees similarities between the clubs by saying, “These are people who are working all week to take their kid to a football match and it’s not cheap nowadays. They expect somebody to give them blood, sweat and tears for that jersey.
“That’s what it takes. If they know you’ve given everything, but still lose, they’ll still back you because they’ll know through the work you’re putting that you appreciate them coming to support.”
Snodgrass joined the Hammers during the January transfer window after an impressive first half of the season with Hull City, for whom he bagged seven League goals in 20 Premiership appearances.
The attacker was brought in as a replacement for controversial star Dimitri Payet and while he is arguably less talented than the French international, his vast experience may prove to be valuable for the Hammers moving forward.
