Steven Gerrard: Mocked by Tottenham Twitter account

Steven Gerrard: Mocked by Tottenham Twitter account

Shortly after Brendan Rodgers' side blew a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 at Crystal Palace, a post mocking them appeared on Tottenham's official Twitter feed.

It read: "Brutal but very funny. The biggest capitulation since Newcastle in the 90s."

In the 1995-96 season Newcastle, under Kevin Keegan, let a 12-point lead slip away and finished second behind Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United.

The tweet was accompanied by a Vine video which segued from Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard leading an inspirational team huddle after their victory over Manchester City to his slip to gift Chelsea the opening goal in their recent 2-0 win at Anfield.

That was followed by footage of Dwight Gayle's equaliser for Palace, a close-up of the 3-3 scoreline from Sky's coverage and an unrelated clip of Palace boss Tony Pulis laughing.

Spurs removed the offending post and subsequently tweeted: "We are currently looking into a security issue where our official Vine account has been compromised.

"We apologise to anyone offended by a recent tweet, which was immediately deleted. This post was not tweeted by anyone affiliated to THFC."
