'Give me another year' - Luke Ayling and Robbie Keane's brilliant exchange after 'failed' celebration

Robbie Keane has responded to Leeds United defender Luke Ayling's version of his iconic celebration following his goal against Wolves in the 4-2 win over the weekend.

The Whites star nodded home Marc Roca's corner from close range just after halftime to give Javi Gracia's side a 2-0 lead after Jack Harrison's early opener before goals from Rasmus Kristensen and Rodrigo wrapped up the occasion.

However, after his goal, Ayling ran over to the touchline before ending up spectacularly failing the inspired celebration with former Leeds striker Keane's version seeing him do a cartwheel, a forward roll and finger pistols.

Ayling had previously attempted the move in seasons gone by, most notably after scoring the 91st-minute winner also against Wolves in the 3-2 comeback win in March last season.

But now after using it once again following a goal against Wolves, Ayling's own iconic version of the celebration has caught the attention of the master himself.

Keane tweeted at Ayling with two 'clapping hands' emojis, and Ayling replied: "Still trying to master it... give me another year" with a 'fingers-crossed' emoji, a 'shaking hands' emoji and a 'laughing' emoji.
