The FA have reportedly launched an investigation into a video that claims to show Oli McBurnie in an altercation with a Nottingham Forest fan during a chaotic pitch invasion after Tuesday night’s play-off semi-final match.
Fans invaded the pitch following their penalty shootout win over Sheffield United at the City Ground, with Nottinghamshire Police already arresting a man after United striker Billy Sharp was knocked to the ground and hurt.
Now, footage on social media purports to show former Swansea City star McBurnie, who is currently injured and was wearing a surgical boot, kicking out at a fan who was lying on the ground during the ugly scenes. It is unclear whether the kick made contact.
The video has been shown on Sky Sports on Wednesday evening, with several national media outlets reporting an FA investigation is now under way.
The Scotland international did not feature in the game, having been ruled out for several months in April with a foot injury.
Neither Sheffield United or Nottingham Forest have commented on the incident.
