"I'm ashamed and embarrassed that a small number of our fans have decided to fly that around the stadium," Mee told Patrick Davison of Sky Sports.

"They have completed the point. There's a group of lads in there that is embarrassed to see that, they've missed the point of the whole thing we are trying to achieve and these people need to come into the 21st century and educate themselves.

"It does not represent what the club is about, what the players are about and what the a majority of the fans are about, that's for sure. It's a small minority of people and I'm really upset that happened."
