'Elderly' Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo brilliantly trolled by New York Red Bulls banner

Frank Lampard started his first game alongside fellow veteran Andrea Pirlo in midfield, and the duo's combined age of 73 was not lost on Red Bulls fans.

How do you troll your opponents' most high-profile players? Use the oldest trick in the book, of course.

It even gives this fantastic MLS sign a run for its money.

Yes, Pirlo and Lampard are pretty long in the tooth, but it's not quite got to this stage yet...
