A number of Cardiff City fans reportedly react negatively to the club's decision to give supporters free red scarves.

A number of Cardiff City supporters have reportedly reacted negatively to the club's decision to hand out free red scarves to fans.

The Championship outfit, who changed their famous blue strip to red last summer under new Malaysian owners, are due to give out the scarves ahead of tonight's league clash against Brighton & Hove Albion.

"It's marketing genius, but in my mind it's another step towards ridding the club of the Bluebirds," supporter Michael Morris wrote on website, according to the Daily Mail.

The owners also rebranded the club's Bluebird symbol by replacing it with a red dragon.
