HEART OF GOLD: Hull City boss Steve Bruce

STEVE Bruce may never top any popularity contests on Wearside after the Geordie’s reign as Sunderland manager.

But the former Sunderland boss has made a couple of fans’ dreams come true by handing over a pair of tickets for this weekend’s Capital One Cup final.

The Hull City manager was given two tickets by his current employers for this weekend’s show-piece event at Wembley.

But he sent the tickets up to Wearside with a request they be given to Sunderland fans desperate to go.
