Shearer was on BBC punditry duty for the FA Cup tie between Derby and Premier League champions Leicester last night.

Both sides played out a 2-2 draw, with Darren Bent's shocking own goal the main, hilarious talking point.

That being said, Savage pushed Bent close with this comment:

Savage then had the nerve to throw himself into the conversation about resting top players for cup games. He declared:

"The great players are never rested. Messi, Ronaldo... I was never rested."

Shearer held his tongue - or was more than likely gobsmacked - on the night but he was not holding back this morning.

The former England captain scored 112 goals in 138 games for Rovers and helped them to the 1994/95 Premier League title. Savage played three years at Ewood Park and scored one goal in 76 appearances.

Shearer's ever so gentle burn definitely got a lot of traction.
