Charlie Austin leaves Swindon crowd in stitches with hilarious comeback after confronting angry fan after Doncaster loss
CHARLIE AUSTIN left the Swindon crowd in stitches after a hilarious comeback to an angry fan.
Swindon were on the end of a 2-0 loss to Doncaster to leave Town with just one win in their last four games.
Following the match, former Premier League striker Austin went over to the fans after being beckoned over.
The fan in question then proceeded to give Austin, who has scored three goals since arriving at the County Ground in January, some stick.
However, not one to mince his words, Austin had a brilliant response for the fan.
He said: “What you gonna do mate, is go home and in half an hour have a pint and a Chinese.”
The 33-year-old then walked off to cheers of: “Charlie, Charlie Austin.”
Fans online were also backing Austin’s corner.
One fan wrote: “Fair play to him, deserves to defend himself. Not every game can we dominate. Lots of unsteadiness with changing players and coaches.
“Have a good evening @chazaustin10. Just shows you give two win or lose.”
A second said: “I saw this from the Don Rogers. @chazaustin10 stuck up for the squad, fair play to him.
“Yes, we didn’t get a result, but our own fan base shouldn’t be turning on our team. Support through and through, good times and the bad.”
A third commented: “Fair play to Charlie, i’d be calling out my team mates too if i were him. Too many didn’t look interested today, it looked an effort just to go through the motions.”
Another added: “Well done Charlie for putting the fan in his place x.”
