The kick-off time for West Ham’s farewell clash with Manchester United has been delayed following violent scenes outside the Boleyn Ground

The Hammers will bid farewell to their home of 122 years after tonight’s encounter, before their move to the Olympic Stadium.

Thousands of fans lined the streets to welcome the players, but the chaotic scenes saw United’s coach attacked as it made its way to the stadium,

Bottles were thrown by fans outside the ground, with Wayne Rooney stating the bus had been “smashed up”.

Police were forced to intervene but the carnage ensured kick-off was put back by 45 minutes, to 8:30pm.

“It was disappointing of course we know it is a big night for them leaving the stadium but I am sure West Ham as a club will be disappointed what their fans have done,” Rooney said.

“We are here now and will prepare for the game and do our job.”

The area around the ground was heavily congested throughout the evening as supporters made their way to the Boleyn Ground.

The chaotic scenes prevented the two team coaches making a smooth entrance to the stadium.

The visitors were eventually able to get through after police intervention, with horses and riot vans used, but not until 7pm.
