Tottenham Hotspur has been forced to apologise over a tweet mocking Liverpool’s draw with Crystal Palace yesterday.

The tweet, which was sent from the team’s official account, read: “Brutal but very funny. The biggest capitulation since Newcastle in the 90s”.

It also contained a link to a video showing clips of Liverpool’s defeat to Chelsea.

Following complaints from angry Liverpool fans, the tweet was deleted, with Spurs claiming the account had been hacked.

Spurs said: “We are currently looking into a security issue where our official Vine account has been compromised.

“We apologise to anyone offended by a recent tweet, which was immediately deleted. This post was not tweeted by anyone affiliated to THFC.”
