Fulham star Tom Cairney took to Twitter to vent his anger at Leeds United fans for allegedly abusing his family during the 1-1 draw between the two sides last night.
The midfielder popped up with a 95th minute equaliser to send Craven Cottage into raptures, but was unhappy with what he termed ‘disgusting’ behaviour from the opposition’s supporters.
Yeah they were abusing all the families in the cottage tonight they told me after… disgusting they've got no class mate! Makes it sweeter! https://t.co/M19x4U5Fra

Cairney’s eighth goal of the campaign was enough to salvage a point for Fulham but they may feel that they should have taken all three.
The hosts fell behind when defender Tim Ream comically sliced a clearance past his own keeper in the fifth minute and although winger Alfonso Pedraza had opportunities to extend the Yorkshire side’s advantage, it was the Londoners who always looked the more likely to score.
Neeskens Kebano thought he had levelled when his shot cannoned down off the bar but was adjudged not to have crossed the line by referee Lee Probert.
Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips earned a second yellow card with a minute remaining for a foul on Scott Parker, leading to a spell of intense Fulham pressure in injury time.
It looked to be coming to nothing before the ball broke to Cairney 20 yards out and he duly found the top corner with an arching strike past the helpless Rob Green.
The 26-year-old celebrated with his own fans but his displeasure at the treatment from the travelling Leeds contingent was evident in the aftermath of a tense encounter.
