Derby County loanee Mason Mount has taken to Twitter to celebrate the Rams reaching the Championship playoff final at the expense of Leeds United in an apparent dig at Spygate.

The Whites, a goal up from the first leg at Pride Park, took the lead at Elland Road on Wednesday night when Stuart Dallas tapped in after Liam Cooper's header had hit the post.

Jack Marriott then drew Derby level with his first touch before half-time after a mix-up at the back between Cooper and Leeds goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

 

Mount and fellow Premier League loanee Harry Wilson netted after the break - the latter a penalty - only for Dallas to drift in and fire Leeds back level on aggregate.

Leeds defender Gaetano Berardi was then sent off for a challenge on Bradley Johnson before Marriott edged Derby back in front with a composed finish to claim a 4-3 aggregate win.

Mount, on loan from Chelsea, tweeted the following message after the game:

Some Derby fans responded on the social media platform, loving what the talented 20-year-old had posted:

Derby, who become the first team to lose the first leg of a Championship playoff semi-final at home and still go on to reach the final, will face Aston Villa at Wembley on Monday 27 May.
