Perth Glory boo-boys motivated me to take a penalty: Rhyan Grant

For over an hour, Rhyan Grant had more than 50,000 fans booing his every touch and had he not been the target of Perth’s boo-boys, the Sydney FC fullback would not have stepped up to take a penalty in the A-League grand final shoot-out.

The sight of Grant walking up to take Sydney’s third penalty raised more than a few eyebrows but the defender says he was one of the first to put his hand up to take a penalty, determined to have the last laugh against Perth’s supporters.

After a few heated clashes with Perth full-back Jason Davidson early in the second half of Sunday’s decider, Grant’s every touch was met with a chorus of boos, whistles and jeers from a parochial crowd at Optus Stadium.

Not even the nervous period of extra-time saw that hostility subside and when Sydney FC coach Steve Corica asked which players were confident of taking a penalty, Grant jumped at the opportunity to take one purely to silence the crowd.
