Alan Hutton claims that West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass would have been “raging” in the dressing room after the club’s shock 4-0 League Cup defeat to Oxford United.
The former Aston Villa and Scotland international, who played alongside the Hammers star 40 times for both club and country, insists that the 32-year-old is the sort of player who gives 100 per cent every game and will demand the same from his teammates.
The Irons were stunned by Oxford on Wednesday night, Manuel Pellegrini’s men succumbing to a 4-0 defeat at the Kassam Stadium to crash out the League Cup.
Speaking about his former partner on the right flank, Hutton says that he would have been fuming with his teammates and that he will have let them know it in the dressing room.
Hutton told Football Insider: “That is one guy I know who would have been raging. I guarantee you that he wasn’t happy.
“Snoddy’s the type of guy that if he played bad last night, I bet he ran about and he tackled and he worked hard. He’d give everything, always.
“Sometimes you have an off night which is fine, but the least you expect off a player is 100 per cent. I’m sure he would have been one of the main voices in the changing room at half time and full time.”
Snodgrass has been used as a backup option by Pellegrini this season, making just one start in the Premier League so far.
He has turned out a total of six appearances across all competitions during the 2019/20 campaign, leaving him on 59 outings for the Irons since signing in east London.
