Peter Lorimer is a legend at Leeds United, but he seems to be tarnishing his reputation with his support for the club's controversial owner Massimo Cellino.

In an article for the Yorkshire Evening Post, Lorimer claimed that Cellino can succeed given time and hit out at Leeds fans who have subjected the Italian - along with previous owners - to criticism and abuse. Now a club ambassador, Lorimer suggests that the actions of Leeds supporters have driven out successive club owners and will put off potential buyers.

Leeds fans were quick to turn on their former hero, reacting angrily on Twitter.
