It is the age of the football fan – scarcely before has the opinions and actions of the supporters had as immense a significance. FanTV, Social Media and other outlets have been set up to give fans a chance to express themselves and clubs can hardly afford to ignore them. This has also given rise to certain celebrity football fans – and in Scotland, look no further than ‘angry man’ Gordon Sawers.
Sawers has gained notoriety as a diehard Kilmarnock fan whose expletive-ridden and pull-no-punches approach has gained him a significant following.
From rolling around in a field after his side staved off relegation to getting thrown out of the stadium in a home fixture after he engaged in an argument with the opposition striker, this is a man who is certainly garners a lot of attention.
Fortunately, he does seem to have some moments of calm as well as he was seen taking a photo with Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha. The game between Kilmarnock and Rangers ended in a goal-less draw which is just as well – it’s not hard to imagine Sawers having a go at Caixinha even after asking for a selfie with the man!
