West Ham boss Moyes: Cairney was behind our dugout...?

West Ham boss David Moyes played down the presence of Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney for yesterday's 1-1 draw at Chelsea.

Television cameras captured Cairney behind the dugout during the match, which he is understood to have attended in a personal capacity alongside former Fulham team-mate and close friend Matt Smith, who is now at QPR.

However the Hammers boss insisted Cairney's close proximity was nothing more than coincidence.

Asked about Cairney, Moyes said: “No idea, was he?

“If he was then it certainly wasn't a ticket from us. I was hoping you were going to say Lionel Messi was sitting behind us!"
