Birmingham fans turn on Gold, Sullivan

Birmingham fans turned on chairman David Gold and co-owner David Sullivan as their side's relegation from the Barclays Premier League was confirmed despite a 4-1 win against Blackburn.

Chants of the "the board must go" were aimed towards the director's box once it became clear there was going to be no last day of the season Houdini act for Alex McLeish's side.

Birmingham have paid the price for a season of turmoil which was undermined by the protracted and ultimately failed takeover bid by Hong Kong businessman Carson Yeung in December. That resulted in Steve Bruce quitting as manager, after he could get no assurances about his future.

But fans have become disillusioned at what they perceive as a lack of investment in the squad by Sullivan and Gold.
