Vaughan was back at Goodison last night for the first time since he lined up against Sunderland in January 2010.
He was on the receiving end of a 3-0 defeat, but appreciated the ovation he was given by the Blues fans who remembered his 100 per cent commitment throughout his Everton career.
"Result aside I really enjoyed going back to Everton," he tweeted. "Thanks to all the fans for the great reception. It meant the world to me."
