It's a bit early for April Fool's Day...

Our own Kevin Kilbane was the victim of a racing preview prank at the hands of Boylesports last week.

The nicest man in football was in the company of jockey Robbie Power and rookie interviewer Brían, both of whom were in on the joke as the filming got underway.

In what can only be described as a victimless crime (we're not counting Kev, of course) the former Everton player watched on as Brían got under Power's skin with some underhanded questions, before the jockey eventually stormed off...or so Kev thought. 

Brían was then told that he was being "sent home", even though it was his first day on the job, and decided to turn on Kilbane for not helping him out. 

Kev wasn't having any of it however, and eventually unleashed his full repertoire of insults, giving us a glimpse of what it must have been like in the dressing room with him after playing him a bad pass.
