Wolves ace Ruben Neves sends message to Man Utd's Marcus Rashford over 'his' iconic goal celebration in Liverpool win | The SunFebruary 5, 2023
WOLVES ace Ruben Neves sent a message to Manchester United's Marcus Rashford while celebrating his goal against Liverpool.
Julen Lopetegui's side put Liverpool to the sword on Saturday, running out 3-0 winners.
A fifth minute own-goal by Joel Matip handed Wolves a lead.
January signing Craig Dawson then got in on the act seven minutes later, firing home on his debut.
Neves added a third, and the final nail in Liverpool's coffin – but the midfielder decided to send a message to Man Utd ace Rashford while celebrating.
Neves ran towards the corner pointing at his temple – a celebration Rashford has regularly used this season – before being mobbed by his team-mates.

The Portugal international turned to the crowd again pointing to his temple and his chest, to let everybody know that he was the first person to do the goal celebration years before the Man Utd and England star.
Wolves shared an image on Twitter of Neves and wrote: "Nobody does it better."
No one knows entirely for sure why Rashford points to his head.
However, popular opinion believes by pointing to his mind – Rashford is highlighting mental health.

The free school dinners hero has been open about his battles mentally – admitting it hindered him during the 2021-22 season.
He told Sky Sports after scoring against West Ham in October: "I was struggling at times with more mental things.
"It wasn't really my own performance but other things off the pitch. That's the biggest difference from last season.
"Too often last season, I wasn't in the right headspace for games. I wasn't surprised by some of the stuff that was happening."
Another theory is Rashford has regularly suffered with the noise and pressure leading the line at Old Trafford.
Closing his eyes while pointing to his head could also be about shutting out external distractions and unwanted criticism.
This allows him to do what he does best; score goals.
