Shay Given Has His Say On Curious Reaction to Mo Salah Screamer

Shay Given Has His Say On Curious Reaction to Mo Salah Screamer

The highlight of the weekend's Premier League matches was somewhat of a tale of two parts - Mo Salah's exquisite strike and Shay Given's indifferent reaction as he continued to throw back his dinner in the studio.

As stunning as the Egyptian's goal was, the former Irish goalkeeper was also making headlines on social media after Liverpool's win at Anfield on Sunday.

Now, the former international has had his say on the incident, claiming he was 'stitched up' by the producer of the show.

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on TalkSport, Given said:

We were totally off air, so the producer has stitched me up at the end of the show. He’s said to us, ‘we’ve just got a little clip to show you before we’re finished for the day’.

So I’m sitting there quite relaxed thinking, ‘What it’s going to be?' And it’s me munching down a Sunday roast.

I had my Man City head on. Ian Wright and Steve McManaman were going mad because it was a special goal, but I felt maybe Chelsea could have taken a point or two off Liverpool for my old club.

Once Salah hit that strike I thought, ‘Oh that’s it, they’re not losing now'. So it was back to my food. My nickname is ‘The Horse’ and the nosebag was back on as soon as the ball hit the net. I think I would have caught it, myself.
