One Direction fan threats played down

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has claimed there was "nothing" in the challenge that ended with One Direction star Louis Tomlinson vomiting during Stiliyan Petrov's charity match at Celtic Park last weekend.

Louis Tomlinson was representing Celtic.

The singer, playing for Celtic, was barged over by Gabriel Agbonlahor and was later pictured being sick at the side of the pitch.

A spoof Twitter account was then set up in Agbonlahor’s name, before being bombarded with abuse and even death threats by ‘Directioners’ -- fans of the popular boy band.

However, Lambert has since played down the incident, saying that Tomlinson had been fine about it after the final whistle.

"He’s [Gabby] taken the pressure off me. There was nothing in it,” he said. “It was just a great occasion. It was about Stiliyan [Petrov] and the charity. That was the most important thing. The Celtic supporters were fantastic. It was a brilliant day.

"It’s a contact sport, regardless of whether it’s a friendly. There was nothing in it. The lad from One Direction was really good about it.

"I don’t know whether Gabby is going to speak to him. You are taking someone out of their comfort zone. He’s a singer and you’re putting him into a football environment. Footballers can naturally do this kind of thing.

“But I don’t know if a threat from a teenage girl is much of a threat."
