WATCH: Simeone ran gauntlet of bottles launched by angry Man Utd fans

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone ran a gauntlet of angry Manchester United fans after last night's Champions League win.

Simeone's side knocked United out of the Champions League and moved into the quarter-finals of the competition after a 41st-minute header Renan Lodi gave them a 1-0 (2-1 aggregate) win.

Following the final whistle, the Atletico manager sprinted down the touchline and headed for the dressing room as usual.

However, the United fans decided to launch bottles at the 51-year-old.

Supporters launched plastic water bottles onto the pitch after the game. Several of the bottles hit the Argentine manager as he passed through.

Simeone did not stop to react to what the fans were doing. Instead he sprinted down the tunnel to wait for his team to return from the pitch.
