Chelsea ejected some Manchester United fans for singing ‘that’ Ashley Cole chant on Monday night.

As ‘Chelsea rent boy’ rang out at Stamford Bridge, I tweeted about it.

So, it’s good to hear that Chelsea acted on the chants.

“This behaviour will not be tolerated at Chelsea. Those supporters will be banned from attending matches at Stamford Bridge in future and, in co-operation with Manchester United, we have passed the details of those supporters to them so they can take appropriate action.”

The supporters will now be banned from attending any further games at Stamford Bridge, but we await to see what punishment – if any – their club will dish out.

While we wait to find out, you can entertain yourself with the ‘It’s perfectly fine and safe for a gay Premier League player to come out’ statement often made by non-queer people, especially if you find yourself wondering what’s so bad about this chant about Chelsea…
