Did you see Mark Lawrenson's hilarious gaff on Match of the Day?

This really is rather hilarious!

As football pundits go, Mark Lawrenson seemingly divides most football fans. Some do not really like his rather moody outlook on anything but Liverpool, but we actually rather like just how grumpy he is.

That being said, on Match of the Day on Saturday night we are pretty sure that Lawro made everyone love him after his massive Freudian slip which had us all in stitches - it was better than most of the football!

But what exactly did he do? Well, when analysing Everton's victory over League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge, Lawro was listing some of the Toffees players who are back in action : “Jagielka’s back as we saw today, obviously Mirallas, penis, er Pienaar as well.”

Yep... Mark Lawrenson said penis on national TV and it has already become our highlight of 2016 as we can only imagine that nothing will top how hilarious this was. It was a little too cringe-worthy from Lawro that fellow pundit Trevor Sinclair looked a bit uneasy and not sure whether to laugh or cry.

Before the gaff, the attention on Pienaar was all on his return to action for the Toffees for the first time this season after missing 26 games since July last year, as well as missing 37 games in all competitions last season.

The South African captain did have an early chance to mark his first appearance with a goal but missed a header. Pienaar might be able to get another run out when Everton take on Manchester City at the Etihad on Wednesday evening, before they face Chelsea on Saturday.
