'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Richard Reid speaks

'I heard it. It was very clear and I understood what they were saying. Was I offended by it? I don't know. I just think they were taking the p***. Maybe some of them were drunk or something, I don't know. I just don't understand why I got booked. I was told it was for security reasons but I don't see how that is possible. I don't see how what I did would affect security of the fans. I just put my finger to my mouth to say, 'quiet'. I'm used to it from opposition fans.

I just think it was ridiculous. I was really frustrated when the ref gave me a yellow card as I don't think I deserved it but that is football, I suppose, and you just have to get on with it. The chanting made me want to score more goals. I was very delighted to have scored once and wanted another. It is always great to score goals, especially at a new club. The Middlesbrough supporters have been fantastic to me and I feel really settled.

I haven't got a point to prove but I play to my physical strengths, although I still need time to develop properly. The fans appreciate players who fight for the team and they see that I am doing that. That's the main reason why they have supported me. It was an amazing reception from the home fans. I really appreciated it.'
