'I loved being in the away end with our supporters today. As a player you arrive on the bus and head straight to the dressing room, you don't get to see or feel what the fans feel.
'When I retired I always wanted to be in the away end with our supporters and I absolutely loved it today.
'A huge thank you to our supporters who travel the world supporting our great club. I f****** love you all.
