Hilarious Ryan Brennan celebration silences Shelbourne bench 'Fat boy' jibes

It was quite the night for Drogheda United's Ryan Brennan as he scored two goals, got one over on his former side and pulled off a hilarious celebration in the Drogs 3-1 over Damien Duff's Shelbourne.

The win was made even sweeter for Brennan given he was unceremoniously booted out of Shels by Duff when the ex-Chelsea player took over the League of Ireland side.

Time clearly hasn't healed the relationship between the two, as Brennan revealed that his unique belly-rubbing celebration after his stunning second goal of the game was in response to 'fat boy' jibes aimed at him from the Shelbourne bench.

"There was a few words exchanged that I think were quite out of order from one professional to another," Brennan told LMFM after the game.

"Being called 'fat boy,' a former pro to another, who played at the top of the game, I think it's fairly disrespectful."

Brennan didn't let the jibes get to him too much last night as he turned in a virtuoso display in Drogheda's come from behind victory. The former Shels man levelled things up midway through the first half with a cool side footed finish from the edge of the box.

Dayle Rooney smashed home a spectacular volley to put Drogheda ahead in the second half, while Brennan completed the comeback with a quality volley of his own to wrap things up with 15 minutes to play.
