A clip showing Nottingham Forest forward Lyle Taylor mocking Preston North End defender Jordan Storey has gone viral on social media.

Taylor, who football fans might know as the man responsible for arguably the sport’s most ‘disrespectful’ penalty technique, appeared to accuse Storey of being a ‘baby’ during the closing stages of Saturday’s Championship clash at The City Ground.

The Montserrat international hit out at his opponent in the 83rd minute of the match for complaining to referee Simon Hooper.

The clip shows Taylor mocking Storey by theatrically pretending to cry while calling the 24-year-old some choice names in the process.

Although the incident took place right in front of the referee, substitute Taylor managed to avoid a yellow card.
