Mohamed Salah scored his sixth goal in just three games to help Liverpool on their way to a 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday afternoon.
The result at Vicarage Road extended the Reds’ unbeaten record and sent them clear into second place after Chelsea’s heavy defeat to Tottenham later in the evening.
But eagle-eyed supporters noticed something rather strange about the Egyptian’s celebration, which appeared to be mocking Sergio Ramos, the Real Madrid captain.
It appeared to be a gesture similar to the ‘Albanian Eagle’ which got Xherdan Shaqiri in trouble at the World Cup, but it soon became apparent that it was something Ramos had done before.
Salah was allegedly poking fun at reports from the Football Leaks that the Spaniard failed a drugs test prior to Los Blancos’ 2017 Champions League final win over Juventus.
WAIT SALAH DID THE RAMOS CELEBRATION?

The two players were involved in a collision at the 2018 final in Kiev, which seriously damaged Salah’s shoulder. That kicked off a war of words between the players and also Dejan Lovren, the Liverpool defender, who hasn’t hidden his disdain for Ramos.
