Former Labour leader Neil Kinnock was booted out of the home stand at Fulham by stewards after celebrating wildly when Cardiff City scored their opening goal in Saturday’s 2-1 victory.

The football fanatic caused fury among home fans at Craven Cottage by jumping for joy when Steven Caulker put his beloved Bluebirds ahead in the 12th minute.

He and his family – including his grandchildren – were immediately ejected from the stand, but the politician was later spotted going bonkers with other away fans in the Putney end after Cardiff’s injury-time winner.

A Fulham spokeswoman said: “Mr Kinnock was located in the home stand on Saturday and caused some angry responses when he and his family celebrated the Cardiff City goal. He was relocated in The Putney End, the away stand, where there were a number of spare seats. We would always relocate away fans found in home areas, if seats are available, to ensure that Fulham fans located in home areas enjoy their matchday experience.”
