Livid Everton Fan Calls John Stones A ‘F**king Rat’ After League Cup Win Over Barnsley (Video)

Everton just about managed to squeeze past Barnsley in the first round of the Capital One Cup, though John Stones’ grand return to Oakwell proved to be something of a mixed night for the young centre-half.

Despite being partially at fault for Barnsley’s first goal, Stones rallied as Everton came from 2-0 down to eventually win the game 5-3 in extra-time.

The defender, who handed in a transfer request in order to push through a move to Chelsea shortly before kick-off, received a polite ovation from most of the travelling Everton supporters, except for one chap – who loudly denounced Stones as a “f**king rat” as he made his way down the tunnel…

Stones has only played 47 times for Everton. We’re not sure he quite qualifies for ‘rat’ status yet.

As for the official Everton stance, manager Roberto Martinez went on record after the game to state that the club would continue to rebuff Chelsea’s ever-escalating bids in an attempt to show Roman Abramovich that “sometimes money can’t buy everything”.

Good luck with that.

    It wasn’t after the game. That video is from half time when we were getting beat 2-0.

    Stones was widely applauded and cheered by 99% of the Everton fans and applauded the fans back at the end of the game. Thousands of people at the match saw this.

    One idiot is not reflective of the reception he received overall, in the same way 5 Chelsea fans on a train in Paris being racist is not reflective of all Chelsea fans.

    Next step, John Stones goes on strike.
