Gary Neville succeeded in getting out of Stamford Bridge without being noticed by Chelsea and West Ham fans by putting a coat over his head on Sunday afternoon.

Having been on commentary duties for the London derby clash, which ended in a 1-0 victory for the hosts, Neville decided he wanted to make a brisk exit from the stadium.

He opted to walk out alongside both sets of supporters, taking the unusual measure of covering his head with a coat, so that he would not be recognised.

Gary Neville looked to leave Chelsea’s match against West Ham without being recognised

Posting a video of himself leaving the ground on his Instagram, accompanied by the caption ‘Operation Exit The Bridge’, Neville clearly enjoyed the challenge of not being seen by the rival fans.

The 47-year-old provided a running commentary of his escape, admitting at one point that he would not have tried to leave a football match this way in the past.

‘I couldn’t have done this 10 years ago, I think I’d have been battered!’ he said, in an apparent reference to his unpopularity with opposition fans when he played for Manchester United.

After moving away from the Premier League venue, Neville was excited to show the public the next part of his plan.

‘Watch this now,’ he continued, before being handed a motorcycle helmet and climbing onto the back of a taxi bike.

Moments later, the taxi bike started moving to take Neville to the airport, with the pundit exclaiming: ‘And we’re away! Beautiful, ‘ey? What an operation! You liked that, didn’t you?’

As he went past a few more supporters, Neville had one final message for viewers, adding: ‘Dead posh around here, by the way as well, so can’t do that at every ground!’
