Three-year-old Manchester United fan sees RED over BLUE school uniform

School uniforms aren't every child's cup of tea, but this little girl's sent her into a meltdown – because it was blue.

What's the big deal about that? Well, despite being just three years old, Lilly Rae Doyle is a devoted Manchester United fan who, of course, play in red.

And for a fan of the Red Devils, wearing rival Manchester City's colour is tantamount to treachery – which little Lily Rae demonstrated by bursting into tears.

Despite reassurances that everyone at school would be wearing the uniform, Lilly repeatedly cried: "I don't like blue. I want to take it off."

Lilly's mother, 28-year-old Faye Cummins, was not surprised by her daughter's reaction.

Speaking to Manchester Evening News, she said: "I knew she wasn't going to be happy.

"She just loves United, she is such an avid fan and loves everything to do with them. It's always United, United, United.

"Most of my family are City fans, it's just me and my sister that are United. They've all seen the video and they all think it's quite funny, they'd much rather she was a Blue.

"It was a nightmare, I don't know how we're going to get on when it's her first day at school because she's not changing her mind. I don't think it's going to be easy.

"It's tough to see my little girl upset but I'm sure she'll get used to the new uniform. She's so passionate about United and I think the video's brilliant, I hope it's something which will make other people smile as well.

"Most of my family are City fans, it's just me and my sister that are United. They've all seen the video and they all think it's quite funny - they'd much rather she was a Blue."

The video has divided opinion online, with some questioning Faye's decision to share Lily Rae's tantrum, while others admired the toddler's passion for her football team at such a young age!
