Moyes was interviewed by BBC Newcastle and Radio Five reporter Vicki Sparks after northeast strugglers Sunderland’s goalless Premier League draw at home to Burnley at their Stadium of Light ground on March 18.

Sparks had asked if Sunderland owner Ellis Short’s presence at the game meant Moyes was under additional pressure, with the Black Cats yet again involved in a battle against relegation.

Video footage published by the Daily Star newspaper showed Scottish boss Moyes replying, «No, none at all» before the interview concluded.

The former Everton and Manchester United manager, however, believing he was off camera, added: «You were just getting a wee bit naughty at the end there, so just watch yourself. You still might get a slap even though you’re a woman.

«Careful the next time you come in.»
