Report: Danny Rose was the Tottenham player to accidentally knock Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink over

Tottenham and Chelsea were involved in ugly scenes at the full time whistle at Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham and Chelsea's players were involved in an ugly melee at the full time whistle on Monday night as frustrations boiled over.

Spurs let a two goal lead slip to draw 2-2, handing the league title to Leicester City in the process, with their challenge faltering one time too many.

There were a number of altercations and bad challenges during the final stages of the match, with players from both teams clashing by the tunnel.

In the ensuring melee, Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink was shockingly knocked down into the dugout, as seen in the video below.

The Times report that Tottenham ace Danny Rose was the player responsible, but the shove was not intentional. 

It reads: "Danny Rose, who was also taunted by Willian, reacted furiously and accidentally knocked Guus Hiddink, the Chelsea manager, to the ground, which in turn provoked an aggressive response from Steve Holland, his assistant."

Rose later spoke out on the incident, telling The Telegraph, which also reported he was the one who made the push: "I couldn't tell you what happened, it was just handbags being thrown.

"I saw the Chelsea manager fell on the floor. I hope he is all right. People were saying from the bench that he conducted himself like a true gentleman throughout the whole game. He did not want any trouble to be started."

The Mirrorreport Rose was shoved into Hiddink, who fortunately got straight back up and took command of his Chelsea team, urging his players to calm down, and sensibly at the age of 69, did not go looking for trouble in response.
