Jason Cummings fires back at Leigh Griffiths snipers as Dundee striker insists Hearts fans' abuse went 'too far'

Asia's Tech News Daily

Jason Cummings has slammed the “disgusting” abuse directed at players from the stands and online – insisting it would lead to prosecution in any other walk of life.

The Dundee striker was subjected to stick from the Hearts support after nodding a late equaliser at Tynecastle on Saturday.

But it was little compared to the bile that poured down on team mate and fellow ex-Hibs star Leigh Griffiths throughout the 1-1 draw in Gorgie.

In a week where Easter Road defender Ryan Porteous revealed death threats and social media messages wishing he’d die of cancer after his red card against Rangers, Cummings spoke out.

He blasted: “It’s almost like you get your ticket and it says in small print, you can say what you want, do what you want, don’t worry about it.

“Some of the abuse is disgusting. If you were to say that in any other walk of life or any other job, the police would be involved.

“I don’t know how it’s right for when it comes to a game they can say what they want, do what they want.

“Leigh is a good lad, a family man and we’re just all human beings doing our job. You do get a bit of stick but it comes with the job I suppose. For me sometimes it’s too far.”

Griffiths was targeted for abuse referring to alleged incidents in his private life before and during Saturday’s draw in Gorgie and has been subjected to similar chants at grounds around Scotland.

Cummings said: “Griff is alright, he’s used to it. He’s a top pro and similar with me, it probably just drives him on more. It does not really bother him but he would rather not get that much stick.

“It can go too far. Just because you’re in the public eye it’s like they can say what they want to you and not get in trouble.

“People say it’s part of the job but sometimes it should not really be part of the job, especially with some of the horrible messages you receive online. What can you do about it?”

Cummings was also targeted after his 83rd minute leveller with objects raining down and Dee full-back Cammy Kerr being hit by a cup.

Cummings added: “Cammy took it, he took it for me. It was aimed at me but the boy missed me and ended up hitting someone else.

“If you did that anywhere else in the street or whatever you would get in trouble with the police but you just get away with it.”
