Fans protested against controversial owner yesterday

Hundreds of Cardiff City fans gathered before the side's 3-0 home defeat to Southampton to protest against owner Vincent Tan.

Fans have been unhappy with the Malaysian businessman who changed the club's colours from blue to red and sent Malky Mackay an email demanding he resign or be sacked.

Despite the ultimatium being briefly lifted, the 3-0 Boxing Day defeat against Southampton proved to be the 42-year-old's final game in charge.
