Haven''t seen it, but it''s a pretty standard rule to be booked for an ''excessive'' celebration;

Celebration of a goal

While it is permissible for a player to demonstrate his joy when a goal has been scored, the celebration must not be excessive.

Reasonable celebrations are allowed, but the practice of choreographed celebrations is not to be encouraged when it results in excessive time-wasting

and referees are instructed to intervene in such cases.

A player must be cautioned if:

• in the opinion of the referee, he makes gestures which are provocative, derisory or inflammatory

• he climbs on to a perimeter fence to celebrate a goal being scored

• he removes his shirt or covers his head with his shirt

• he covers his head or face with a mask or other similar item

Leaving the field of play to celebrate a goal is not a cautionable offence in itself but it is essential that players return to the field of play as soon as possible.

Referees are expected to act in a preventative manner and to exercise common sense in dealing with the celebration of a goal.

Rules may be rules, but it''s an absolute joke of a rule.

Where was he supposed to celebrate? In front of the Bournemouth fans? He doesn''t go into the crowd, they push onto the pitch. Shouldve sent the City fans off.

Ridiculous decision and one he didn''t need to make. Another example of referees getting too carried away with their own importance,

He was still on the football playing surface, the stewards should be held accountable for not controlling the fans and the fans who encroached onto the pitch should be dealt with by their club.

A joke. It wasn''t excessive, he scored a last minute winner and ran over to celebrate with his own supporters.

Maybe it''s to do with my dislike for Bournemouth!?
