Ruben Neves sends emphatic celebration message to Man United’s Marcus Rashford

Wolverhampton Wanderers star Ruben Neves, on Saturday, sent a crystal clear message to Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford.

Neves, of course, took his place centre stage in Wolves’ latest outing earlier today.

En route to a remarkable 3-0 drubbing of Liverpool, the midfield conductor bagged his side’s final goal of the day, latching onto Adama Traore’s delivery across the face of goal before confidently dispatching beyond Alisson.

And yet, post-match, it is not Neves’ latest goal itself which has seen the 25-year-old grab the headlines.

Instead, as much has come by way of his ensuing celebration.

After being mobbed by his teammates amid another fine display on Saturday, Neves turned back towards the home crowd at Molineux, before pointing to his head.

From here, the Portuguese used his other hand to highlight the celebration, seemingly insinuating that it is very much his own.

And this signal, as alluded to above, has since been widely interpreted as a message to the aforementioned Marcus Rashford.

For those not aware, Rashford, amid a stellar recent stretch of form for Manchester United, has made use of the same celebration, in pointing to his head after finding the net.

Neves, though, has in fact been doing as much for years now, and was evidently keen to make as much crystal clear on Saturday afternoon:
