The 34-year-old lost just two of his 38 fights, recording 14 KOs during that time.

Flanagan was in attendance to watch his side defeat Sheffield United 2-1 at Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Haaland had missed a penalty earlier on in the match, as Man City found it difficult to breakdown a stubborn Blades.

The Norway international eventually found the back of the net, heading home a Jack Grealish cross.

Flanagan then made his way from the stands onto the pitch, and was seen jumping on Haaland’s back, whilst joining in the City celebrations.

Security guards quickly rushed onto the scene to remove Flanagan, and usher him out of the stadium.
