Spurs were forced to apologise after their official Twitter account posted a video poking fun at Brendan Rodgers's side's collapse against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park

Tottenham were forced to apologise after a tweet mocking Liverpool's capitulation against Crystal Palace was sent from their official Twitter account.

Liverpool drew 3-3 with Palace at Selhurst Park, despite leading 3-0 with 12 minutes to go, to all but end their chances of winning a first league title since 1990.

Shortly after, a tweet was posted by Tottenham's account which read, "brutal but very funny. The biggest capitulation since Newcastle in the 90s."

The tweet was accompanied by a video poking fun at Steven Gerrard's famous team huddle following his side's 3-2 win over Manchester City and his subsequent slip against Chelsea, whilst it also showed Dwight Gayle's equaliser against the Reds and Tony Pulis laughing.

The offending post was quickly removed and Spurs have since confirmed that they are looking into the incident, which they claim was a breach of their security.

They later posted: "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."
