‘You’re absolutely f***ing honking son’: Sheffield Wednesday captain Barry Bannan hits back at Rhian Brewster after the Sheffield United star’s jibe at their bitter rivals, as the Owls celebrate promotion back to the Championship

  • Sheffield Wednesday secured promotion back to the Championship on Monday
  • Captain Barry Bannan aimed a jibe at Rhian Brewster during their celebrations 
  • Brewster had mocked the Owls following Sheffield United’s own promotion

Sheffield Wednesday captain Barry Bannan has told Rhian Brewster he is ‘absolutely f***ing honking’ in an x-rated blast at the Sheffield United star.

The 33-year-old made the comment during the Owls promotion celebrations after their victory in the League One play-off final on Monday.

Wednesday secured a dramatic 1-0 win in extra time against Barnsley, with Josh Windass scoring with a diving header deep into stoppage time.

The Owls enjoyed an open-top bus parade and civic reception at Sheffield’s town hall this week.

Members of the squad were filmed at venues in the city as they toasted their promotion with fans, with Bannan filmed hitting back at Sheffield United striker Brewster.

Wednesday players then began a chant declaring ‘They’re all f***ing w*****s at the Lane’.

Bannan’s comment came in response to Brewster mocking Wednesday during Sheffield United’s own promotion celebrations last month, having secured their place in the Premier League next season.

Brewster led chanting in the Steel City chanting about their bitter rivals, with the 23-year-old asking fans ‘What do you think of Wednesday?’

That led to a  response of ‘s***’ with Brewster following up with: ‘What do you think of s***?’

The Blades striker then led a chant of ‘We hate Wednesday, we hate Wednesday’ with the crowd.

Brewster has struggled since joining Sheffield United from Liverpool for £23.5million back in October 2020, with the striker scoring five goals in 63 appearances for the club.

The 23-year-old scored one goal in 16 appearances in the Championship this season, before a hamstring injury sustained in October forced him out of action for the remainder of the campaign.

Bannan, who joined Wednesday in 2015, targeted securing promotion to the Premier League immediately after lifting the Championship play-off trophy.

‘I know there are some big teams coming down, but we’ll be a massive club in that division as well.’ said Bannan.

‘You look at Sunderland – they got promoted last year, they went up to the Championship and they harnessed the momentum to reach the play-offs at the first attempt.

‘We’ll be trying to take a leaf out of their book.

‘There are teams who have done it previously (gone from League One to the Prem in two years) and when you get into a winning habit it becomes normal, you don’t even think about losing,’
