Former Labour leader and Cardiff City fan Neil Kinnock was ejected from his seat at Fulham's Craven Cottage after celebrating a goal.

Kinnock was sat in the home end with his two grandchildren when Steven Caulker headed Cardiff in front during their 2-1 Premier League win in west London.

Fulham's ground is one of the most diplomatic in the Premier League, and staff were not heavy-handed with the Labour peer.

A Fulham spokesman said: "Lord Kinnock was sat in the home end and was moved by our stewards to the away end where there were a few empty seats. We would do the same with any away fan, it’s club policy.The home fans were upset when they saw him celebrate as they would be with any fan celebrating a goal against their team."

It was just as well. Jordan Much hit a stoppage-time screamer in front of the travelling supporters to clinch the Bluebirds' first away win this season.
