The point is he shouldn't have assaulted the pitch intruder. He should have let the stewards and police tend to the matter. But he didn't punch the player or have a weapon? If the fan had actually confronted him he would have every right to defend himself but that's not what happened.sorry but that is nonsense. The player would have never reacted if the idiot hadn't ran on the pitch. Who was to know the morons next move, punch the player, he might have been carrying a weapon,you just dont know.
If I was Tavernier I would not be waiting to get a punch in the face either.
Lets not try to detract from the utter madness and inexcusable acts of that twat last night and other mindless individual who tarnish the reputation of Hibs and the 99% decent supporters.I am sick of it and to be honest it puts me off going to games.
