BLACKBURN Rovers fans were left crying foul over Manchester United’s controversial corner routine at the weekend – but not for the legality of the move.

While most of the country are in dispute over whether Cristiano Ronaldo’s disallowed header should have been allowed after Wayne Rooney’s clever corner kick, Rovers supporters were just reminded of a supposed unique club honour.

Rovers were believed to be the only club allowed their crest on their home corner flags, an honour supposedly bestowed on them by the FA for winning the FA Cup three times in a row back in the mid 1880s.

United’s crest was clearly on their flag during their win over Chelsea at the weekend, leaving many Rovers fans complaining.

The authorities though now insist they are unaware of the privilege, with a club spokesman admitting there are no official records supporting the claim.
