Wilder was filmed spraying a beer at one Sky Sports reporter yesterday while dancing with the squad and the boss revealed he’s got no plans on taking it lightly anytime soon. 

Speaking to Sky Sports this morning, Wilder was asked how long the celebrations will go on for and when the ‘fuzziness’ will disappear.

Wilder joked that he would be ‘giving it another go in about half an hour’. 

Sheffield United can still clinch the Championship title with victory away at Stoke City on Sunday, if Norwich City lose away at Aston Villa.
