Shamrock Rovers fans were slammed online for singing a song mocking Queen Elizabeth II’s death at their Europa Conference League game against Djurgardens last night.
The League of Ireland team took on the Swedish side in Europe’s third-tier competition on Thursday night, hours after confirmation of the Queen’s passing. A clip posted on Twitter shows a group of fans singing the words “Lizzie’s in a box,” to the tune of KC and the Sunshine Band hit, Give It Up.
The supporters, some of whom waved flags and pumped fists in the air while belting out the words, have been heavily criticised on social media. One person wrote: “Although the Queen has sadly passed away, we can rest assured that her majesty’s final resting place will never be lower than scummy little clubs like Shamrock Rovers and their fans.”
