(Video) Granit Xhaka celebration theory published as newspaper explain who Arsenal star shushed after scoring stunner

Arsenal summer signing Granit Xhaka came off the bench at Hull City to score his first Gunners goal in stunning style on Saturday before celebrating by putting his finger to his lips and telling someone to shush.

As well as shushing, Xhaka made a talking gesture with his right hand, but who were his actions aimed at?

National newspaper The Mirror have referenced a series of Tweets from @grocanon and apparently Xhaka was responding to criticism in the Swiss press.

The Mirror report that Swiss journalists criticised Xhaka for saying he’d be proud to represent Kosovo at international level after the country were granted FIFA membership earlier this year.

Xhaka was subjected to even more flak following a missed penalty and @grocanon reckons the 23-year-old had simply been waiting until the cameras were on him to react.
