A furious Collingwood fan has been filmed in an 'appalling' post-match spray at umpires after the Magpies' loss to Brisbane on Thursday night.

Zac Bailey lived out the classic childhood dream, kicking a goal after the siren to hand Brisbane a one-point win over Collingwood and end their week of adversity on a high note.

The Lions had been 0-2 heading into Thursday's clash and trailed by 25 points in the second quarter, before fighting back to prevail 11.7 (73) to 11.6 (72).

While Lions fans were rejoicing after the game, one Collingwood supporter was absolutely irate.

The man had to be held back by security after launching a shocking tirade at umpires as they made their way from the ground.

3AW boundary reporter Jacqui Reed captured the footage, saying the man tried to smash some glass barricades after entering a cordoned off area.

“A fan tried to go after the umpire straight after the siren,” she said.

“There are little kids right near us right now. It’s really not pretty to watch.”

The video shows a young Collingwood fan looking shaken by the incident as he exits with his father.

3AW Melbourne described the incident as "appalling", while social media users were also left disgusted.

Brisbane score insane win after the siren

Bailey had been on the losing end of a crunch moment six days earlier when he was denied a late holding-the-ball free kick against Geelong's Mark Blicavs.

But when Daniel Rich speared the ball to a leading Bailey with 25 seconds to go on Thursday night, the running defender seized the moment to kickstart Brisbane's season.

"I couldn't look - and I reckon my mum would have been at home saying her Hail Marys that the ball went through," coach Chris Fagan said.

"But with Zac - with the ball in his hands, he's actually quite a cool customer, so I'm not surprised that he kicked it through.

"A great moment for him in his football life and a great moment for our footy club, fortunately."

The victory was a testament to the Lions' character after they had to remain in Victoria following last Friday's loss to Geelong amid a coronavirus outbreak in Brisbane.

It forced the game to be switched from the Gabba to Marvel Stadium.

The Lions will stay in Victoria for now and travel to Ballarat next Wednesday ahead of their round four clash with the Western Bulldogs at Mars Stadium.
