The latest march was accompanied by various chants including “We want Glazers out”, although some were also heard saying “Joe Glazer’s gonna die”.

But there were plenty of cheers at full-time after Cristiano Ronaldo's scorching free-kick sealed his hat-trick and a 3-2 win against Norwich.

As for the Glazer family, supporters want to see major restructuring at board level in a bid to improve results on the pitch.
