The teen also assaulted Notts Forest forward Kenan Davis and star full-back Djed Spence during the drama.

Toner appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today where he admitted three counts of common assault and going onto a playing area at a football match.

The Leicester fan was said to have downed a “cocktail of drink” before the match.

Toner stormed the pitch during the first half of the match at City Ground on February 6 as Nottingham Forest celebrated a goal.

He was arrested after the chaotic scenes were caught on live TV while the game was being played.

The teen was released on conditional bail, including a condition not to attend any football stadium on the date of any live football match.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers condemned his behaviour after the match.

He said: “It’s behaviour you never want to see. Whatever goes on on the field it has to be a safe environment for players.”

And Foxes legend Gary Lineker criticised the pitch invader’s actions, tweeting: “An embarrassment and a disgrace.”

Around 4,000 Leicester fans flocked to rival Nottingham Forest’s ground for the game – the teams’ first meeting in eight years.

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cooper, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We continue to work closely with both football clubs who are supporting our investigation following this incident.

“Violence at football matches will not be tolerated. In this case Leicester City has said the individual involved will be subject to a life-time ban from all Leicester City fixtures at home and away.

“I hope the actions taken serve as a warning to anyone else that violent behaviour at football matches is taken extremely seriously and could land them with hefty consequences.”
