"Goal celebrations are a personal matter and up to the player to decide. No one dictates what the player can do as long as he stays within the [rules] of the game and as long as it doesn't result in a
caution. He is a very articulate young man and will have weighed up the pros and cons and decided to do it because it was a personal and emotional matter."

started a six-year prison sentence in January for grievous bodily harm with intent. (BBC)
