Pic: Spurs apologise to Liverpool FC & fans following 'hacked' tweet

Tottenham Hotspur issued an apology to Liverpool claiming their Vine account had been "compromised" and that an investigation was being launched.

After the drama at Selhurst Park last night in which Liverpool blew a three goal lead to finish 3-3 with Crystal Palace, the official Spurs Twitter account tweeted a Vine entitled 'Brutal but very funny. The biggest capitulation since Newcastle in the '90s.'

The tweet was accompanied by a Vine video, which jumped  from Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard leading an inspirational team huddle after victory over City to his slip against Chelsea. The Vine then showed Gayle scoring the equaliser for Palace last night and then their manager Pulis laughing in an unrelated incident.

It was quickly removed by Spurs who claimed there was a breach of security and that their Vine account had been compromised. The club are now are insisting that the Vine was not created by any employee of Tottenham Hotspur.

Whether it was a mistake or not, the timing of it would have incensed Liverpool fans who are understandably feeling very sensitive right now. All eyes will be on Manchester tomorrow night as City look to hammer home the advantage with a home game against Aston Villa.

Win, lose or draw, all Vine accounts will be watched with military obsession.
