Fulham fans were left fuming after Brentford striker Ivan Toney celebrated his goal in the 3-2 win over their side in a manner they deemed to be disrespectful.
The 24-year-old striker scored the winning goal in the Championship clash at Craven Cottage on Saturday, and proceeded to celebrate by running to the corner flag and pointing to the sky.
The gesture was seen as a tribute to his former teammate, the late Junior Morias, who died in October last year.
However, Fulham fans were not impressed with the celebration, with some taking to social media to express their anger.
One fan wrote: “Ivan Toney’s celebration was disrespectful. He should have shown more respect to Fulham and their fans.”
Another said: “Ivan Toney’s celebration was a disgrace. He should have shown more respect to Fulham and their fans.”
The reaction to Toney’s celebration was not limited to Fulham fans, with some Brentford supporters also expressing their disapproval.
One fan wrote: “Ivan Toney’s celebration was a bit too much. He should have shown more respect to Fulham and their fans.”
The incident has sparked a debate about the appropriateness of goal celebrations, with some arguing that players should show more respect to their opponents.
Others, however, have argued that players should be allowed to express themselves and celebrate in whatever way they choose.
The incident has also raised questions about the role of referees in such situations, with some suggesting that they should intervene if a celebration is deemed to be disrespectful.
Whatever the outcome of the debate, it is clear that Toney’s celebration has caused a stir among fans of both sides.
It remains to be seen whether the striker will face any disciplinary action for his actions, but it is clear that Fulham fans are not happy with the way he celebrated his goal.
