Rijkaard shrugs off Barcelona boos

Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard shrugged off the boos and whistles from the Nou Camp fans after last night's scratchy 1-0 victory over Racing Santander.

Thierry Henry struck the winner for Barca against a stubborn Racing and Rijkaard said afterwards: "Racing are in good form and people tend to forget that. They play to a good system and are impressive.

"I believe we tried to score a second goal, we had chances, but it wouldn't happen for us.

"Our fans are good, we are those that must inspire them. When we can, the public responds immediately. In the first-half our rate was quite slow, credit to Racing, which played well and closed down space."

Deco added: "We can understand the fans whistling, they want the best from us."
