Had he not reacted similarly after scoring Manchester United's decisive midweek goal against Bournemouth, you would be forgiven for thinking Romelu Lukaku's 'non-celebration' celebration against West Bromwich Albion today was perhaps on account of his brief foray with the club.
Giving United the lead with a goal that greatly resembled the drought-ending headed effort of Wednesday night, it is not yet absolutely clear who Lukaku is directing this consternation toward.
The doubting critics? United's restless fans? Jose Mourinho? - whoever is the target of his silent protest, Jamie Redknapp is not 'avin it:
I don't get the 'non' celebration, I'll never understand that.
I mean whether he is unhappy with the criticism he's been getting, it's irrelevant. You're paid big money to affect games for Manchester United ... I'll never get it.
To be fair to Lukaku, Redknapp's co-analyst Graeme Souness was a little more compassionate toward Lukaku's pleas, but, ultimately feels, Lukaku "has to rise above that".
Needless to say, Redknapp's comments have angered quite a number of Manchester United fans.
Don't understand pundits like Jamie Redknapp & Graeme Sourness, Pogba celebrates and gets criticised for it, Lukaku doesn't celebrate and gets criticised for it. Make your mind up lads.

I don't know why Jamie Redknapp is upset over Lukaku not celebrating. I actually like it. I think he knows he can do better and is obvs aware of the criticism he's getting (and rightly so). He knows as well that he's been awful as well.
