Leeds United fans hit back at chairman Ken Bates after he labelled a group of them "morons".

Leeds United fans have hit back at chairman Ken Bates after he labelled a group of protesters as "morons".

Fans gathered outside Elland Road before Saturday's game against Middlesbrough to voice their concerns over what they feel is a lack of investment at the club.

"We do not feel it is acceptable to refer to Leeds United fans as 'morons'," read a statement on the Leeds Supporters' Trust website.

"We do not want to get into personal battles with Mr Bates or point out the numerous inaccuracies in his words."

The Yorkshire club host West Ham United on Sunday.
