Vaughan's tongue-in-cheek tweet came after he played for FC in Matt Roney's testimonial match and received a predictably hostile reception from the visiting fans.

He shared a video of Blades fans booing him during the match but that didn't stop him from winning a second-half penalty during the match, which was coolly converted by star man Roney.

Sheffield FC's team was littered with high profile guest players including Vaughan, Matt Duke, Derek Geary, Rob Kozluk and Michael Brown.
