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 one 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.

Speaking on Sky, pundit Dion Dublin criticised the conduct of the fans and suggested he did not blame Vieira for responding.
