Gary Neville and Roy Keane have backed the protests against the Glazers at Old Trafford, despite the delay to Sunday's game with Liverpool.

Manchester United fans turned up to Old Trafford en masse on Sunday afternoon to chant against the club's American owners.

Some fans got past security rails and members of security and broke onto the Old Trafford pitch, leading to a delay in the 4.30 pm kick off, with no sign of when the game will take place.

With the delay of the match, the Sky Sports pundits inside the stadium had the chance to discuss the events going on outside the stadium, following the fans removal from inside the ground.

Backing the fans decision, former United captain Keane, said, "I have sympathy with the fans, 100 percent. It's a tipping point for them. It was peaceful. One or two bottles were thrown and a couple of flares - I think that was towards Jamie to be fair - but they've had enough

"It has reached a tipping point for the Manchester United fans. They have had enough. United have got some of the best fans in the world.

"We have seen today that they are thinking enough is enough with the ownership of the club."

Concentrating on the Glazers recent decision to join the European Super League, an idea roundly criticised by the whole of football in England, Keane's former teammate Neville agreed.

Speaking after his former captain, the Sky Sports commentator added, "This is a consequence of the Manchester United owners' actions two weeks ago.

"There is a general distrust and dislike of the owners, but they weren't protesting two or three weeks ago.

"He [Joel Glazer] said he wanted to rebuild the trust [of the fans] - he never had the trust."

The protests in Manchester started earlier on Sunday when fans showed up outside the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, where the United players stay before home games.

The disruption immediately raised questions about the possibility of a delay in kick off and the fans on the pitch only caused further issue.

As yet there is still no time for when kick off will be, with some call for the game to be delayed until a later date.
