Chris Brunt has been at West Brom since 2007 after signing from Sheffield Wednesday

West Brom winger Chris Brunt says he is “disgusted” and “ashamed” after being struck on the face by a coin thrown by a Baggies supporter.

Brunt had gone over to give his shirt to one of the visiting fans after West Brom lost 3-1 in the FA Cup fifth round at Championship side Reading.

“If people come to football matches and think it is acceptable to throw coins at footballers or anyone else, it is disgusting,” Brunt told BBC Sport.

“I am ashamed of them today.”
