Derby Manager Frank Lampard Sings 'Stop Crying Frank Lampard!' In Dressing Room
"Cause all of the spies, are hidden away, just try not to worry, you'll beat us some day. We beat you at home, we beat you away, stop crying Frank Lampard!"
Sang to to the tune of Oasis' hit song Stop Crying Your Heart Out, this Spygate-related chant was created by Leeds fans ahead of their Championship play-off clash against Derby County this week; a game they were favourites to win.
But after a dramatic and end-to-end semi-final, The Rams secured their first victory over Leeds this season thanks to goals from Jack Marriot (2), Mason Mount and Harry Wilson.
After everything they have been through, Frank Lampard's men had the last laugh and it didn't take long for a certain chant to make its way to the away dressing room.
The former Chelsea midfielder belts out the chorus and well, the video soon went viral, picking up over 13,000 RT's at the tim of writing.
This is something else!

At the full-time whistle, Lampard was asked about the chants:
"Maybe it is sweeter because of the chants. I'm not gonna lie. I've heard a lot of people saying I'm crying about Spygate. I haven't thought about Spygate. We've prepared and got a result." he told Sky Sports.

Of course in January this year, Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds caused huge controversy when Derby spotted a Leeds employee spying on their training sessions ahead of their Championship tie.
Bielsa later revealed that he had spied on every team in England's second tier, which led to a £200,000 fine, a payment the Argentinian manager paid out of his own pocket.
