WATCH: Crystal Palace boss Vieira hits back at taunting Everton fan

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira faces an FA investigation after clashing with an Everton fan last night.

Footage emerged of the Crystal Palace manager seeming to lashing out at a home supporter who was part of a mass pitch invasion following the Toffees' 3-2 comeback win.

Asked about the incident, Vieira said: "I've got nothing to say about that."

The fan who was seemingly involved posted a video of the incident on Twitter. It was put on the social media platform by a fan with the username of @frankie_efc and shows someone putting a middle finger in the face of Vieira, who then reacts.

Thousands of jubilant Everton supporters who had seen their side secure Premier League survival invaded the pitch following the match.

Footage on Sky Sports showed the fan goading Vieira with what looked to be obscene gestures and the angry Palace boss reacted by lashing out, first with his hand before kicking the individual who had approached him.

Vieira was then seemingly shoved by another Everton fan before others stepped in to ensure the 45-year-old could leave the pitch safely.
