Bruce Apologises To Blues Fans

Last updated : 21 December 2005 By Brian Cartlidge

Bruce responded to chants of 'Brucey, Brucey give us a wave' from United fans during the game at St Andrew's, which Blues lost 3-1.

"As soon as I put my hand up I thought 'I shouldn't have done that,'" he told the Birmingham Mail.

"If people want to hang me for this, that's up to them. But my commitment to Birmingham cannot be questioned.

"If our supporters were offended, then I apologise. It was not a slight on them or our club," he said.

"Birmingham mean as much to me, if not more, than United. Remember, if you include my time as a player, I've spent six years here."
