Another wrote: “Not a penny more #BoycottAdidas.”

A third added: “BoycottAdidas trending! Let’s keep it going. #GlazersOut.”

During the same game some fans refused to take their seats until the 17th minute to mark one minute for every year of Glazer ownership.

A mass walkout on 73 was also planned in the final home game of the season against Brentford.
