Adam Smith (Millwall – on loan from Spurs) receives vile anti-semitic abuse from Leeds fans over Luke Varney red card

The Championship clash between Millwall and Leeds was never going to be one for the faint hearted and so it proved to be at The New Den on Sunday afternoon.

A key incident in the game involved Millwall right back Adam Smith, who is on loan from Tottenham, being elbowed in the head by Leeds’ Luke Varney a couple of minutes after the break.

Referee Mark Halsey saw it as a straight red and sent Varney off the pitch with Leeds eventually going on to lose 1-0 thanks to an 85th minute Chris Wood goal.

Leeds boss Neil Warnock was raging at full time, describing the decision as “harsh really. He’s put his arms up, I know he has, but he’s not actually gone in with his elbow like Mark Halsey says he has.”

Warnock added: “He elbows him below the chin – the kid goes down as if he’s been poleaxed in his head! I’m disappointed at an experienced referee like that. it’s getting soft now, the game, I think. That’s not a proper sending off – I don’t know what the game’s coming to.”

Subsequently, Adam Smith, a highly-rated right back from Spurs, who has England Under-21 honours, has received some pretty sickening abuse on Twitter from Leeds fans.
