There were emotional scenes inside and outside Elland Road as thousands of fans remembered Leeds favourite Gary Speed.

Saturday's clash with Millwall was the first home match at Leeds since Speed's death last weekend. Outside the main stand hundreds of fans ringed the shrine which has built up in the last seven days in memory of the midfielder.

Thousands of shirts, scarves and other memorabilia have been draped around the statute of Leeds legend Billy Bremner. Hundreds more were added on Saturday as fans left tribute after tribute.
