But before he kept the money for himself, he jokingly offered it to the fourth official Andrew Madley, who laughed before waving him away.
Allardyce then pocketed the fiver before returning to his spot in the technical area.
Fans were quick to react on social media, with many joking that the Leeds boss attempted to BRIBE the official.
One person tweeted: “Isn’t that bribing?”
Another added: “Bribing officials now.”
A third wrote: “He will probs get charged for that.”
While a fourth joked: “10 points deduction for trying to bribe match officials.”
Leeds winger Rodrigo opened the scoring 17 minutes into the game with an excellent volley.
