Teens also attacked Notts Forest striker Kenan Davis and star full-back Djed Spence in the film.

Toner appeared at Nottingham Magistrates Court today, where he pleaded guilty to three counts of common assault and entering the playing area during a football match.

Leicester fans are said to have had a cocktail of “drinks” before the game.

Toner took the field by storm during the first half of a match at the City Ground on 6 February as Nottingham Forest celebrated the goal.

He was arrested after chaotic scenes were broadcast on live television while the game was being played.

The teenager was granted conditional bail, including the condition that he not attend any football stadium on the day of any live football match.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers condemned his behavior after the game.

“It’s behavior you never want to see,” he said. “Whatever happens on the pitch it has to be a safe environment for the players.”

And Foxes legend Gary Lineker criticized the pitch invader’s actions, tweeting: “A shame and a disgrace.”

Around 4,000 Leicester fans flocked to rival Nottingham Forest’s pitch to watch the game – the first meeting of the two teams in eight years.

A joint security bill between the two clubs is worth £30,000 amid fears of violence.

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

“Violence at football matches will not be tolerated. In this case, Leicester City said the individual involved would be subject to a life ban for all Leicester City matches on home and away yards.

“I hope the actions taken serve as a warning to anyone else that violent behavior at football matches is taken extremely seriously and can lead to severe consequences.”
