However, the man did not manage to fulfill his task, with Derby reporting a man acting suspiciously outside their training ground to police.
In the aftermath of Derby’s penalty shootout victory at Elland Road, their players held imaginary binoculars to their eyes to troll their vanquished opponents.

Despite losing the first leg of their semi-final 0-1, Derby won 4-2 in the return fixture to set up a Wembley final date with Aston Villa.
The game will see Lampard and Ashley Cole come up against their former Chelsea teammate John Terry.
