A CELEBRATING Nottingham Forest supporter was pulled out of a canal by police officers as he enjoyed his side’s derby ‘win’ – only to be told Derby grabbed a 97th-minute leveller.

The dopey Forest fan had left near the end thinking Joe Lolley’s goal had been enough to secure victory against their hated rivals.

He was so drunk he jumped into the canal opposite Nottingham Train Station to celebrate the ‘win’.

But police rescued him.

However, he did not like the news after he dried off.

The Rams snatched a point in their fight for a play-off spot thanks to Chris Martin’s goal right at the death.

Nottinghamshire Police posted on Twitter: “Officers attended a report of persons in the canal opposite Nottingham station.

“A Forest fan had jumped in to celebrate a win over local rivals, unaware of the late equaliser #wounded”

Bitter Leeds fan Nathan Chambers replied to that: “Was he banging on about how they won the European Cup 40 years ago.”

While ‘AJ’ joked: “n true #NFFC fashion, that fan didn’t play to the final whistle!”

Perhaps this ‘Ram’ was getting his own back (see video below).

Forest remain in a strong position to reach the Championship play-offs.

And rivals Derby could even play them there.

The Rams are just three points and one place outside the top six as their revival since Wayne Rooney joined continued.
