England fans make opinion on Harry Maguire clear with chant after Scotland win

England fans have made their opinion on Harry Maguire clear with their chant for the Three Lions defender.

Gareth Southgate's side ran out 3-1 winners over Scotland at Hampden Park in what marked the 150th anniversary of the first ever international fixture.

But while the likes of Jude Bellingham shone, Harry Maguire had a night to forget after turning Andy Robertson's low-driven cross into into his own net, less than half an hour after coming on for Crystal Palace's Marc Guehi.

The Manchester United defender was also subject to ironic jeers from supporters around the ground, with Southgate labelling the treatment he has received a "joke" during a passionate rant.


However, England fans showed their unbridled support for the 30-year-old after the game, as they sung the iconic 'vodka and jager chant' as the players came over to applaud the fans. You can the watch footage below.


Maguire would also seem to have gotten over his own-goal, as he took to social media to aim a cheeky dig at Scotland after the win.

Southgate stood by the defender after the game, admitting he felt "livid" about some of the jibes thrown at Maguire recently.


"He's just come out and spoken to the media, which I think shows the resilience and the character of him," the England boss told Channel 4.

"We're now in a situation where, because of people in our own country, the opposition think they can have fun with him. What's that about?

"He's been an incredible player for England in one of the most successful teams we've had - critical for what we've been doing.

"We allow him to be open to that? It's a joke; an absolute joke. It makes me livid."


He added: "Thankfully he's got the support of the dressing room and the people behind him. I thought the England fans in the stadium tonight were absolutely brilliant.

"I've no problem with the Scotland fans - they're having fun. But what stirs that up is people in our own country. Other players will think: 'Is that what awaits us?'

"Great credit to him that he managed to show the composure with the ball, keep the ball and put that moment behind him."
