Footballers’ goal celebrations have traditionally been a little weird and wonderful, but fans might have been wondering what Bobby Linn was up to on Saturday!
His goal against Berwick in the 52nd minute killed the visitors’ hopes, but his arm-pumping dance, which was quickly taken up by his team-mates, raised a few chuckles.
Speaking after the game Bobby said: “A few weeks ago Simon [Murray] and Bridie [Scott McBride] were doing this dance but mine was different. Wee Jack [Smith] we think looks like Kevin out of ‘Home Alone’ so we were doing the two robbers’ dance, so we did that in the warm up and there was a wee bit of banter. There’s a lot of banter about that flying about so that was the first thing that came to my head because we had just done it today so we all just kind of did it.
“It actually comes from Kevin Nicoll and Ricky Little but it’s all fun and games. It was a nice wee dance but I think a lot of people would be saying ‘What are you doing?’
“To be honest the place is flying and buzzing just now.
“We’re doing well, other teams have dropped points but we’ve got to look after ourselves and we knew we’d have a tough game today and in the end we won 2-0 so it’s a massive result for us.”
He continued: “When you celebrate a goal you see every single person, you see the team, making an effort, the togetherness that’s there, and I think you see the battling for each other.
“It’s there to be seen and I think everybody’s quite happy at the moment. We had a wee blip but we knew we would come back from it, there’s still a million miles to go but we’re in a good position, we’re on target and we’re still top of the league so we can go and enjoy our Christmas, have a good one and then we’ve got a tough one away to East Fife so we’ll see how we get on there.”
