A footage has emerged showing Shamrock Rovers (Irish club) fans singing and chanting merrily celebrating the death of Queen Elizabeth II during a Europa League opening fixture versus Sweden's Djurgardens. The video that was seen circulating online shows supporters at the game singing, “Lizzy’s in a box”, to the tune of the KC & the Sunshine Band song, Give It Up. The video has over 5 million views on twitter.
Shamrock Rovers came out to clean their name after yesterday's incident. “Shamrock Rovers F.C. has been made aware of chants by a group of individuals at last night’s game. Such highly insensitive and callous chanting is not acceptable at our club and is against the values that Shamrock Rovers F.C. stands for. Our ground regulations issued on match tickets and on signage at entry strictly prohibit such activity.” The Club official message said.
Other fixtures went on smoothly like the West Ham tie, Arsenal and Manchester United. West Ham fans sung the UK anthem in honouring the fallen Queen.
