It triggered a steward to head onto the field to carry out his job and tackle the invader, but ended up with the orange-jacketed safety worker becoming a laughing stock.

In his pursuit of the young lad who was happily waving at the fans, the steward slipped on the wet grass.

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw couldn't stop himself laughing, whilst the travelling support chanted: "Are you [Steven] Gerrard in disguise?"
