Leslie faces new claims: Derby jibes plan


The Mirror, 01/11/2002, p5

HEARTS fans plan to turn up the heat on shamed TV presenter John Leslie
at this Sunday’s Edinburgh derby.
Jambos intend to chant songs about the die-hard Hibs fan throughout the
90 minutes.
The fans’ “Kick-back” section of Hearts’ official website sprang into
life just minutes after news broke of Leslie’s axeing from the This
Morning programme.
Under an entire section devoted to his misfortune, one fan said:
“Another Hibee on the rock n roll (dole) – he’ll be doubly gutted after
Another added sarcastically: “Of course this won’t influence the choice
of songs on Sunday. Of course it will – I’ll be singing my heart out.”
Leslie is the Leith club’s most famous supporter apart from music duo
The Proclaimers.
He even plays as goalkeeper for the London Hibs supporters club
football team.
Yesterday terrace wits were writing new songs on the Internet so that
fellow fans can learn the words in time for Sunday.
