TOTTENHAM fans could be heard singing vile chants about former skipper Sol Campbell ahead of their clash against Arsenal.
The Gunners legend is a hated figure among Spurs supporters following his controversial switch in 2001.
Campbell famously declared in an interview that he was going to extend his stay at White Hart Lane as he approached the end of his contract.
But in arguably the most shocking transfer in Premier League history, the defender, now 47, linked up with Arsenal on a free transfer.
He won the Premier League and FA Cup double in his opening season at Highbury, before becoming an Invincible in 2004.
And ahead of Thursday's crucial derby – which could decide who secures a Champions League spot – Spurs fans showed their hatred for Campbell.

Ahead of the match at Tottenham, a clip has surfaced online where they could be heard singing: 'We're all having a party when Sol Campbell dies.'
Fans also let off flares and smoke grenades as they made their way to the ground for the most eagerly-anticipated derby in recent memory.
A win for Arsenal away at their arch-rivals will see them secure a place in the top four and a return to Europe's premier competition for the first time since 2016.
It would also mark the first time that Arsenal would have finished above Tottenham since they finished second in the 2015-16 campaign.

In a blow for Tottenham, centre-back Cristian Romero has been left out of the squad through injury.
Meanwhile Bukayo Saka was declared fit enough to start for the Gunners, with Ben White having to settle for a place on the bench.
