Andy Robertson emerged as an unexpected goal-scoring hero for Liverpool in their match against Wolves, leading to exuberant celebrations from the entire squad. However, it was a particular celebration involving Robertson and Curtis Jones that caught the attention and generated some playful debate.
In the midst of the jubilation, Robertson was captured in a photo grabbing the neck of his teammate and captain for the day, seemingly in a strangling motion. The image quickly made its way onto Robertson’s Instagram stories, accompanied by his caption: “Get your hands off me now 😂😂❤️.” This lighthearted comment indicated that the gesture was all in good fun.
In response, Jones first shared the same picture with a message expressing remorse: “Sorry brother 😭 you know I love you ❤️❤️.” He then reposted Robertson’s original message and added his own playful response: “This is how happy I was to see you score 🤣❤️❤️ what a guy!”
While the image may appear somewhat concerning at first glance, it’s important to recognize that it captured a split-second moment that conveyed a humorous interaction between the two players. It illustrates the immense joy and excitement they felt in being involved in such a significant moment during the match. The subsequent celebrations following Harvey Elliott’s deflected goal also provided further insight into the team’s camaraderie and spirit.
Considering the challenging circumstances of the match—going a goal down, playing after an international break, and missing key players—the victory held even greater significance and made the celebrations all the more satisfying.
As the season progresses, fans can hope for more memorable moments like this. However, it might be best to avoid any further instances of “strangling” among the players in future celebrations!
