Liverpool fullback Johnson explains low-key goal celebrations

Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson was delighted with his stunning goal in victory at West Ham United.

Johnson grew up at the Hammers and refused to celebrate after he opened the scoring with a belter in the 3-2 win.

He said: "I knew from the beginning that if I scored I was not going to celebrate. I spent the longest part of my young career here, I've got a lot of love for the club and the fans so I try not to celebrate.

"It was a nice strike I got behind it well. As soon as I hit it, I thought this has got a chance. Any other ground and I would have gone crazy."
