Watch: Furious Stoke City Fan Makes For All-Time Classic Sky Sports Moment

Watch: Furious Stoke City Fan Makes For All-Time Classic Sky Sports Moment
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Wednesday night's feast of Premier League action has given us one of the great 'Gillette Soccer Special' moments and, incredibly, it didn't involve Chris Kamara.

Liverpool's 3-0 win away to Stoke City was an exhibition of their strength in attacking areas as Sadio Mané and second-half substitute Mo Salah got the goals to secure all three points, but if the Liverpool fans were delighted by what they saw, the Stoke fans were far from happy.

When Liverpool took the lead, the bet365 Stadium was of the opinion that the ball had crossed the line before being played back and eventually ending up in the Stoke net. You could hear the rage in the Stoke fans as they booed the goal celebrations, and things would only get worse from there.

Simon Mignolet was very lucky to not be sent off for a wild hack at Mame Biram Diouf, and this set one fan in particular over the edge. Unfortunately for Alan McInally, who was covering the game for Sky Sports, he was directly behind him as he was doing a live broadcast.

After the Scot told the fan to calm down, and claimed that he was having a heart attack, Sky Sports felt the need to apologise despite the boys back in the studio thinking it was utterly hilarious.

That is something else.

McInally's reaction was exactly why people bother watching these 'Gillet Soccer Specials' at all, not a reason to apologise, unless the guy actually had a heart attack, in which case it wouldn't have looked great.

Thankfully, he didn't, and the lads in the studio were in stitches.
