Hull goal costs Livermore £12,000 - and he's beaming about it!

Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore is happy to cough up after his goal celebration against West Bromwich Albion went off the rails.

Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore is happy to cough up after his goal celebration against West Bromwich Albion went off the rails.

The 24-year-old, on a season-long loan from Premier League rivals Tottenham, lashed out and booted a £6,000 camera positioned behind Ben Foster's goal.

Photographer Richard Heathcote later posted a picture of the damaged camera on his Twitter account and tweeted: 'Dear @29_JL (Livermore) where do you want me to send the repair bill?'

Sorry Livermore quickly contacted Heathcote on Twitter and offered to pay for the damage with the hashtag #celebrationneedswork.

And he also pledged to donate the same amount to team-mate Tom Huddlestone's hair-raising charity initiative - the midfielder has vowed not to cut his hair until he scores his next goal, with the proceeds donated to Cancer Research.

Watford fan Heathcote added: 'Thanks, jump next time... looks much better in photos.'
