Luke Littler seen 'shushing' fans after 'disgraceful' behaviour during Premier League Darts match

Luke Littler seen 'shushing' fans after 'disgraceful' behaviour during Premier League Darts match

The 17-year-old secured a quarter-final win over Nathan Aspinall.

A furious Luke Littler could be seen ‘shushing’ the Aberdeen crowd after he secured a 6-5 victory in his Premier League Darts clash against Nathan Aspinall.

The 17-year-old, who currently sits top of the Premier League table with three nights to go, took on Stockport-born Aspinall in the quarter-final of Thursday's event.

And the teenager prevailed in what was a tense affair. In fact, Littler showed an impressive amount of composure in the final stages, when a number of spectators booed and whistled as he stood at the oche.

As you can see from the footage below, 'The Nuke' appeared to shout something towards the crowd after his win before producing a "shushing" gesture. It's still not clear what was said.

Here's how fans on social media reacted to the scenes.

One said: "I’m a big Aspinall fan and Littler fan and no matter what you think of him, Luke had every right to react like that to the crowd at the end because that blatant whistling was disgraceful."

A second wrote: "The whistling needs sorting out," while a third commented: "Absolutely love that reaction, guys that were whistling got humbled."

A fourth said: "The whistling isn’t right but the more he reacts the more they will do it I fear because he’s showing that he is affected by it. Doesn’t want it to become a regular thing for him."

A fifth added: "The whistling needs to stop it’s embarrassing."

Littler will face former world champion Michael Smith in the semi-final of Thursday's Premier League event after he beat home crowd favourite Peter Wright.

The teenager was recently praised by Wright, who said Littler has the potential to become the best player in darts history.

“If he wants to do it, he could," the Scot said when asked if he could eclipse Phil 'The Power' Taylor. "But we don’t know what his plan is. He could play for another five years and say ‘that’s it, I have earned enough’.

"He has shaken up the sport. You see him in the back room and his routine is about five minutes practice. Maybe that's what we are all doing wrong - practising too much and wearing ourselves out.”
