The Scottish international amusingly broke the ice before admitting he should not have got embroiled in a verbal spat with some Norwich City supporters during the midweek goalless Premier League home draw against Newcastle.

Snodgrass volunteered to face the media to explain his actions during a fractious first half against the Magpies. Snodgrass reacted angrily to a section of home supporters critical of his delivery from a corner, but the midfielder revealed he had received a positive reaction since the incident.

“I over-reacted but the feedback I have had from fans has been positive because it shows you care,” he said. “I am the same as the fans - I have the same drive and determination to do well for this club. I love being at this club. You take the good with the bad and we move forwards as a club because we need this support more than anything because they are the 12th man.

“I reacted and I shouldn’t have. The fans are a great set, it was heat of the moment. Scottish people just look aggressive sometimes, and it does look as if you are having a go at your team-mates, but I am more angry with myself, that was the case the other night because I was nowhere near good enough in the first half.

“I put so much heart and determination into everything I do, because I care. The fans know what we want and when it does not go right there is no one really more disappointed than myself, I don’t think straight for days on end. The fans were singing my name at the end and I went straight over to apologise at that section of the ground. It is one of those things and you draw a line under it.”

  • Bit stereotypical saying Scottish people sometimes look aggressive. I've never seen that in the Krankies or Lorraine Kelly.

  • Just so you know, the spectators in the snake pit are not deaf and dumb. They were singing Snods' name not signing it. At least I hope that was what you meant to say. Perhaps autograph hunting has changed now that the players are paid too much to care for the fans and the fans sign them themselves. That would be easy.

  • FFS will you let this drop. Comment on flooding in Somerset, devolution, what colour knickers the queen wears, anything except this non story. Snods has already apologised to the fans. What more do you want? Just to help you Archant, I hear there been an incident at an ice cream factory, fancy a scoop?

  • What would we give for young versions of Ian Crook and Jeremy Goss in our midfield now? Maybe then, RVW would be a prolific goal scorer like Chris Sutton was?

  • Then there are: Billy Connolly. Drunk, aggressive jocks in town centres worldwide. Even drunker and even more abusive lassies in town centres worldwide, Cracker. Rab C Nesbitt. Gordon Brown. That horrible chap in `The Thick of It`. Rabbie Burns. McGonagal. Alex Salmond. Shorn Con-manery, We all love Big Dunc, Supermac, Jimmy Bone, Flecky and Malky though. Not convinced about the Caledonian Tasmanian Devil yet.

  • K.A if rvw actually ran into space like hooper does to make his goals, or even was a yard sharper then he will find chances will come his way.
