Jamie O'Hara in confrontation with Wolves fans after loss to Blackburn

Jamie O'Hara and Danielle Lloyd

Wolves midfielder Jamie O'Hara was involved in a verbal confrontation with supporters after their 2-0 defeat by Blackburn in the Premier League.

A source told BBC Sport that O'Hara was surrounded by protesting fans at around 1800 GMT and "told them to go away", leading to a further exchange of words.

O'Hara was with his partner, model Danielle Lloyd, and children at the time of the incident.

The club are yet to decide whether to begin an investigation.

The incident occurred when O'Hara came out of the ground with his family and passed by a group of supporters. The midfielder was carrying one of his young sons at the time.

After the initial exchange, the Wolves player and his family moved away and went towards their car.

As they were getting into their car, further words were exchanged before he eventually drove away. O'Hara texted the club shortly afterwards to inform them of what happened.

O'Hara's partner was "upset" and "disgusted" by the incident. Her husband played the full 90 minutes during a game in which there were protests against chairman Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey.

Wolves manager Terry Connor says the demonstrations are hurting everyone at the club. Some fans expressed their unhappiness before kick-off and unfurled banners against the board who decided to dismiss Mick McCarthy.

There were further protests after the game with Morgan eventually going to speak to those involved.

"If there is a protest going on, it is against all of us," Connor said. "It is not easy to ignore, but we are all employees of the football club.

"Players, staff, everyone concerned. We are all in it together."

Cutting edge the difference - Connor

Blackburn forward Junior Hoilett's double left Wolves 19th in the table, with one win in their last 14 Premier League games, and some supporters are angry at the handling of Connor's appointment.

Steve Bruce,Alan Curbishley and Reading boss Brian McDermott were all considered for the post before former assistant Connor was given the job until the end of the season.

And he remains confident that his side can stay up.

He said: "I understand the supporters' frustrations, they want us to win our games but it's not always possible.

"They must keep coming and supporting, and we'll keep trying 100% until the last game of the season."

In contrast to the situation at Wolves, Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean believes he has finally won over the club's fans after climbing out of the relegation zone.

Kean, 44, has been the subject of sustained protests all season but praised the 1,400 Rovers fans who made the trip to Molineux. "For everybody involved it's been tough but the results are coming," commented the Scot.
