Millwall attacker Aiden O'Brien: Fans deserve to celebrate on Wembley pitch

Millwall attacker Aiden O'Brien has backed fans who invaded the Wembley pitch after their League One promotion playoff triumph against Bradford City.

It was the first incident of its kind at the new Wembley and police confirmed 12 people were arrested.

But local lad O'Brien, 23, defended his fans, insisting: “No, they have the right to do that. They've been supporting us all through the season. They should celebrate as much as we do.

“It's a team thing and they're part of the team.

"They can run on the pitch in my eyes for all they want, they deserve to."
