THIS is the moment an idiot football hooligan tumbled over some railings while trying to spit on rival fans.
The thug was filmed walking across a barrier designed to separate the travelling Peterborough fans from home supporters at Reading’s Select Car Leasing Stadium.
As the idiot gets close to the Reading fans he appears to try and spit at them, but in doing so falls over a railing.
The tumble saw the hooligan fall head first into the concrete steps.
Quickly realising his error and that he’d strayed into the area designated for home fans, the Peterborough supporter scuttled back over the fence.
Reacting to the viral video, one person on Twitter wrote: “I hope it hurts I can’t stand spitting.”
Another said: “Embarrassing. Grown men spitting at each other. Pathetic.”
One noted: “He was quick to retreat after acting hard.”
The League One match saw Peterborough emerge 1-0 winners.
Ephron Mason-Clark’s looping header just before half time was the difference.
It was Reading’s first match back in the third tier in 21 years.
After the game home supporters staged a sit-in protest aimed at the club’s owners over perceived mismanagement.
