Edinson Cavani was red-carded for this incident last night…
Controversy reigned last night after PSG striker Edinson Cavani was red carded for his trademark gun celebration and subsequent protests as the French champions beat Lens.
Reports on BBC Sport explain that having scored a penalty in the 3-1 win, he was booked for miming firing a gun and shown a second yellow for immediately grabbing referee Nicolas Rainville’s arm.
The incident is far from the first of it’s kind, demonstrated by the following top ten controversial celebrations – how bad are these?
10) Luis Suarez (Liverpool)
Prior to a Merseyside derby, the Liverpool forward had come under fire from David Moyes about his supposed diving habit. Of course, when Suarez scored, he celebrated by diving through the air—right under the nose of the Everton boss.
