Liverpool fan Sean McGurk celebrated his goal for Wigan Athletic against Manchester United in the FA Youth Cup on Friday by trolling fans with a 'six times' gesture during the Old Trafford clash.
Reds fans love reminding their Mancunian rivals that their team has won double their number of European Cups and Champions League trophies with six compared to three.
But McGurk took the banter a step further by actually celebrating a goal with the 'six times' gesture.
The attacking midfielder, who turns 17 on March 15, was overjoyed after netting for the Latics in front of the Stretford End, traditionally the home of the Red Devils' most raucous supporters.

"I hope we sign Sean McGurk for that celebration alone," joked one Liverpool fan.
"Announce Sean McGurk," tweeted another Reds fan.
“I think we played well, as a team, we have come a long way in the competition and we knew this was going to be tough," McGurk told Wigan Athletic's website.
