ALAN SHEARER joked "don't f*** with big Meeks" after Micah Richards' row with a fan.
The pundit was seen pinning a fan to the wall at the Emirates yesterday after pal Roy Keane was allegedly headbutted.
Following the incident, a 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault.
A police investigation is ongoing.
Richards, 35, appeared on The Rest is Football podcast alongside Gary Lineker and Shearer today.
Opening the show, Lineker made a tongue-in-cheek reference to the alleged incident.

Shearer then cheekily butted in: "The common opinion is don't f*** with big Meeks."
Richards laughed as he said: "No comment."
And Shearer continued: "Flex the guns Micah."
SunSport understands that both Richards and Keane were left shaken by the incident.
Sky are considering beefing up their security in response to the alleged altercation.
The incident is said to have occurred as Richards and Keane waited for a lift by the Highbury Bar within the Emirates' West Stand.
Both men had been making their way pitchside during the closing stages of the match, before trying to head back to the studio as late drama unfolded.
It had looked as if Alejandro Garnacho had won it for United, only for the goal to be ruled out and Arsenal to subsequently score twice.
The Gunners are said to be co-operating with authorities regarding the alleged altercation.
