Stan Collymore has got himself involved in a Twitter spat once more with e̶n̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶n̶a̶m̶e̶ ̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ Gary Neville.

There's no love lost between the two former pros, who have fallen out over the antics of Diego Costa.

The Chelsea forward sparked controversy on Tuesday night by seemingly stamping on Liverpool duo Emre Can and Martin Skrtel. He's since been charged by the FA over the stamp on Can and is staring down the barrel of a three-game ban if he's found guilty.

It seems as though Collymore took exception to Neville's opinion that perhaps Costa should be given the benefit of the doubt over the incidents, which appeared to be on the borderline.

The former Aston Villa striker was all fired up after learning that Costa had appealed the charge, which meant it looked like he would be free to face Manchester City this weekend before a decision was reached.

#shotsfired indeed. Collymore isn't one to pass up the opportunity for a little dig and he soon fired back at the Manchester United man. 

Then it was Neville's turn to get riled up. For those who don't know: No, these two aren't toddlers, they're incredibly wealthy former footballers with plenty of time on their hands.

Nope, we've got no idea what is going on anymore either. Perhaps it's best if we just left them to it.
