Wolves and Nottingham Forest players involved in colossal brawl as stars see red

Morgan Gibbs-White sparked a massive on-field brawl following Nottingham Forest's Carabao Cup quarter-final win over Wolves last night by celebrating in front of the fans who used to cheer him.

The former Wolves midfielder, who joined Forest for £25m in the summer, slid across the turf next to the away end with his fingers in his ears after Forest's penalty shootout victory was sealed, evoking memories of Emmanuel Adebayor's infamous celebration after scoring for Manchester City against former side Arsenal in 2009.

Gibbs-White's antics riled up Wolves stars Adama Traore, Matheus Cunha and Toti Gomes, who rushed across to accost their former team-mate, and when Forest's Dean Henderson and Serge Aurier raced over to retaliate, chaos ensued.

Players and coaching staff from both sides leaped onto the field to join the fray as stadium stewards fluttered around them desperately trying to calm everything down.

It was a sour end to the tie but Forest fans will have enjoyed the spectacle as they celebrated reaching the semi-final of a domestic cup for the first time since 1992.

Should Gibbs-White be retroactively punished for his celebration? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

The game finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, with Raul Jimenez's second half strike cancelling out Willy Boly's first half opener (also against his former club), with Forest winning 4-3 in the shootout.

Henderson was the hero for the home side, saving from both Ruben Neves and Joe Hodge.

The win sets up a mouth-watering two-legged clash with Manchester United, with a place in next month's final on the line.

The winner will face either Newcastle or Southampton – who dumped tournament favourites Manchester City out of the competition last night.
