Paul McKenna was booed by sections of the home fans when he was substituted at the weekend and Billy Davies has warned of the reaction this 'might' bring.
Davies knows, as he told The Nottingham Post, that fans pay their money so have a right to voice their opinion although he has warned that the reaction given might not necessarily be a positive one as a result: 'If the Forest fans are proud of that then good luck to them, they can boo who they like. They pay their money, they can do what they like.
'All that happens is that they get a reputation and they get either a great reaction from their loyal players or they get a different reaction.
'It is up to them. McKenna hadn't trained all week, he was not fully fit. But he is a very experienced, important player.
'If that is the way we treat our players then there is nothing we can do about it. The supporters pay their money.'
The Forest captain had not trained all week and was doubtful before the game, and with hindsight maybe he should not have played - although it was McKenna's importance that saw him included in the end, clearly Davies still was not happy with his treatment though: 'It was a gamble to play him, absolutely, because we knew he wasn't fit.
'When you play with the Cohen's, the Moussi's and the Majewski's, you are talking about players who still have a lot to learn position-wise.
'McKenna has a lot of knowhow when it comes to that, so he is important.
'Good luck to the fans, though. If that is how they want to treat the players then all the best to them.'
Do you think that Paul McKenna deserved the jeers that he received, were you one of them doing this? Do you believe in booing your own players anyway?
