Forest legend Burns rowed with Warnock
Former Nottingham Forest favourite Kenny Burns has confirmed he was involved in a bust-up with Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock and striker Dean Windass on Saturday.
Burns rowed with the pair as they left the field at half-time during the Division One play-off semi-final first-leg clash at the City Ground.
The ex-Scotland star, who now works for Forest in their corporate areas on match-days, was angered by United's approach to the game.
He said: 'Warnock's lot were simply trying to kill the game and I just thought I'd let them know how I felt.'
Warnock revealed after the game there had been a problem at half-time, saying: 'One or two things were said in the tunnel.
'There was a lot of shouting from ex-players. It was handbags, probably people just trying to get publicity.'
Windass faces possible FA disciplinary action after being cited by the referee for an incident in the same game and his club have called a press conference for this afternoon.
The FA have launched an investigation after referee Mark Clattenburg reported several incidents during and after match.
Windass later left the stadium surrounded by security guards.
Both sides are due to meet again in the return leg at Bramall Lane on Thursday and Forest are set to be without star defender Michael Dawson after he lost his appeal over a red-card for a late tackle on Sheffield United's Steve Kabba.
The FA's upholding of the red card means Dawson misses the return leg at Bramall Lane on Thursday night and the play-off final - should Forest reach it.
