Having been in Ballyshannon at the Rory Gallagher Festival this week, Brian Kerr wasn’t too amused by Imagine Dragons’ pre-game showing at the Champions League final.
Former Republic of Ireland manager Kerr spent a couple of days in Ballyshannon at the end of the week.
Tonight, Kerr is one of Virgin Media’s match analysts for the Champions League final between Liverpool at Tottenham Hotspur at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.
In the build-up, Imagine Dragons played to the crowd – but Kerr feels the supporters should have been allowed create their own atmosphere.
“The music bit of it, to me…look I was at Rory Gallagher festival the last couple of days and I loved it. If Rory could come back from the dead and play tonight it’d be brilliant,” Kerr said.
“And I’d put him on ahead of yer man, but anyway — other than that, I’d say that this is a waste of time; they should just let the supporters sing on and create that atmosphere.”
Virgin Media’s coverage is fronted by Annagry native Tommy Martin.
