Alan Shearer got his own back on fans who were swearing at him during Newcastle's 8-0 drubbing of Sheffield United.
Sheffield United took a mighty battering at home to Eddie Howe's side after they were thrashed 8-0.
And watching on from one of the hospitality boxes was Newcastle legend Shearer, who was in attendance at Bramall Lane with some friends.
But as he celebrated the goals flying in for the Magpies, some home fans around him became disgruntled.
It led to some fans hurling abuse at the Premier League icon and Shearer has since hit back after joking about the extravagant scoreline towards them.
He told The Rest Is Football Podcast: «Unbelievable. Eight different scorers, brilliant atmosphere, it was great to be with my pals as a fan for once.
»I was getting a bit of grief because we were in a pal's box in the Sheffield United fans when I was stood up clapping when we scored.
«I don't know what it was but the fans kept doing that [putting two fingers up] to me.
»I thought they were saying it was 2-2, but I kept saying it was 8-0 you f****** idiots. I have to say the Sheffield United fans were amazing.
«If that was me and my team, I'd have left long before the final whistle, but there were thousands of fans that stayed.
»It was a tough afternoon for the Sheffield United fans. That today was magnificent from every player.
«Sheffield United were really poor. After two or three minutes I said to one of my friends 'if we don't win this, it's going to be a long season for us'.
»But they dominated and it could have been, maybe should have been, more."
It was the first time in Premier League history that such a scoreline saw eight different goalscorers.
