Nottingham Forest ace and Derby County scorer mock each other via Twitter

Nottingham Forest winger Michail Antonio saw the funny side of a message praising him at Derby County's expense, but Rams defender Ryan Shotton disagreed.

East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest and Derby County played out an entertaining contest at the weekend, and the talking points keep on coming.

Forest winger Michail Antonio acknowledged a message on Twitter praising his performance, but running down opponent Ryan Shotton in the process.

Antonio favourited the message, and then retweeted it to his 27,000 followers:

The summer signing from Sheffield Wednesday was nominated for the Championship Player of the Month award, while Shotton was making his debut after a late switch from Stoke City.

The comments from Forest fans if not Antonio caught his attention, and he made clear he was not especially impressed with his opponent.
