A THUMBS up got the thumbs down from Wanderers fans at Elland Road as Jermaine Beckford found himself at the centre of a terrace controversy.

The Whites striker was seen to make a signal of appreciation towards fans of his former club Leeds United during the 1-0 defeat on Saturday.

Beckford denied making a gesture when asked by The Bolton News after the final whistle, although he admitted to clapping the home supporters during an earlier warm-up.

Dougie Freedman was also made aware of the incident but his disappointment was focussed on the header Beckford missed late in the game, rather than his interaction with the supporters.

“I didn’t see it but I have been told he waved at some fans,” he said after the final whistle.

“He said there was someone he knew in the crowd, and what am I supposed to say ‘you don’t know them?’

“He should have concentrated more but the disappointment I have got is that Jermaine had a clear-cut chance and he’s missed it.”

Freedman had spoken of his disappointment last week that Beckford had been targeted for abuse by some sections of the Wanderers fan-base, and the 30-year-old looked to have given the perfect riposte to the boo-boys with two superb finishes against Crewe in the Captial One Cup.

That was not enough to earn him a starting place against Leeds, however, with Freedman offering the following explanation.

“Jermaine played 120 minutes in midweek and because of that, we didn’t start him,” he said.

“And I didn’t think there was anything wrong with Craig (Davies) or Joe (Mason)’s contribution.”

No real issue with the wave, but if he is so well thought of at Elland Road why did they not take him back? All would have been forgiven and still will be if Beckford finds the net. But to suggest a 30 player can't play twice a week, Tuesday and Saturday is rubbish. Sounded like he was a passenger for large parts on Tuesday doubt he ran further than 5k. Just excuse after excuse!

So what if he made a gesture. There should be respect amongst opposing fans. If BW fans ridiculed him for that it's ridiculous. The fans should be supporting the players and manager not openly criticising. That just makes the situation worse and is part of the reason why we are in our current position.

Just to let you guys know, Beckford will never puposefully score against Leeds - he told a bunch of us after he left. He's missed sitters for every new team he played for against us, he's a lovely lad and will get you goals. We all miss him here at ER.

Thought there would have been even more backlash as he did the same at your place last season possibly worse offence as then he was doing the leeds salute while the ball was in play and in that game when he came on his contribution was 0.
This is not the first time this has happened with ex leeds noël whealan scored against us while at middelsbourgh and celebrated his goal to boro fans with the leeds salute causing massive backlash.
Good luck for the rest of the season yr performance was nowhere near as bad as some blogs are suggesting, on another day you could have won by two or three goals and neither team looked like relegation fodder to me.

It seems to me that strikers coming to BWFC have always found it difficult to find their shooting boots. Even Anelka had trouble... this is a major part being played on the field. We need a Nobby Nolan.

He is denying doing it because he knows he was wrong and totally unprofessional - he should be fined by the club. On that pitch with 10-15 mins to go he should have been giving everything to get us back into the game not saluting the opposition fans singing beckford beckford give us a wave !! After that and some of the other comments from Leeds fans that he would never score for any other team at elland road - can we be sure he didnt miss that header from 5 yards on purpose so has not to harm his wonderful relationship with the Leeds fans ???

Thats Rubbish to the comment that he would never purposely score against Leeds. He's a professional for goodness sake. And I am a supporter of Jermaine and agree he can get us goals if he plays regularly and remains confident. He does suffer from lack of confidence if he doesnt score for a period of time though like many strikers. I would rather have him than any of the strikers at Leeds!

A professional giving everything for his team and their fans / fighting to get a result with 10mins to go , would have totally ignored the opposition fans singing his name during the match. He would have then scored that header from 5 yards - maybe not celebrate the goal out of respect to his former team . Then after the game saluted his teams fans for their away support and acknowledge his former fans - that's what should have happened - simple.
Will see how costly that miss was and the lost point it would have brought come the end of the season.

He is not a kid he is a 30year old man who behaves like a kid and milks the adulation. Yr bang on about him being lazy. I remember one game he was subbed he sulked off to boos from most leeds fans he slapped Simon grayson's hand out of the way before stropping of down the tunnel, within30 seconds of replacing him think it was howson ran down the left wing and curled on in from the edge of the box. A couple of days later he was forced to apologise for his behaviour seem to remember he was dropped for a game or two then went on a goal scoring spree so maybe he needs a kick up the backside and remember he plays for bolton now not leeds and should give the fans of bolton more respect and grow up a bit.

Couldn't care less if Beckford waved to Leeds fans. Pretty much every player who plays against their former club goes through this kind of mutual appreciation. He scored 72 goals in 126 appearances for them. What concerns me is that we are not playing the kind of attacking football that wins games for the majority of the match, settling on a game plan that involves being patient for 90 minutes and hoping to edge it 1-0. This is not the mentality to be used in this league, this is more Away team or world cup knockout stage mentality, I can only assume Dougie Freedman wishes to be an international manager someday judging by his patient approach that is backfiring in this division.

I was at the game. Beckford when asked by the Leeds fans waved from the bench...fair enough, the guy played for them and scored some important goals. He then came on and was invited to wave at the Leeds fans again. Which he did, with a sly thumbs up. No debate, he did do it. In my opinion he should not have interacted with the Leeds fans. It was poor form. I'd just parted with £100 to take my dad and son to watch us lose 1-0 at a notoriously difficult stadium for fans and teams alike to visit. To see jermaime playing to the opposing fans was disappointing. It's all hands to the pump jermaine, we're staring down the barrel of relegation, with a chairman and manager who don't seem concerned or able to act, the fans are split, the team is demotivated, the bank account is empty. So, against this backdrop your small thumbs up is a worry. Actions speak louder than words jermaine. Personally I hope your move to Fulham happens. Good riddance etc...perhaps you'll be waving at the bolton fans when we play Fulham? Look for me in the stands jermaine, I will wave back using two fingers on each hand. Your ego has always got in the way of your game. Learn some humility .
