Man Utd chief executive 'door-stepped' by anti-Glazer supporters

Manchester United supporters angry at the ownership regime of the Glazer family have brought their 'green and gold' protest to the driveway of Old Trafford chief executive David Gill, reports the Daily Mail. Security has been stepped up at the directors' entrance at Old Trafford on match-days and it is understood that a member of the security firm that looks after United's stadium spent time outside Gill's house on Wednesday as a consequence of the supporters' protest.

United fans have been wearing green and gold scarves and shirts at recent games as a symbol of their dissatisfaction with the Glazers' debt-ridden stewardship. The colours are a throwback to the strip worn by United's formative club, Newton Heath.

And on Tuesday, as United were in Milan preparing for their Champions League game, a group of fans carried a green and gold banner to Gill's home in Cheshire to protest against what they see as Gill's compliance with the Glazers.

The slogan reads 'Debt is the Road to Ruin' and was a reference to a quote from Gill while he was initially opposing the Glazers' proposed takeover in 2004.
