But Lingard, 24, said: “Football makes you happy and you’ve got to enjoy it.

“Obviously I enjoyed the moment and when you score it is a big thing, so you’ve got to take it in your stride.

“I don’t really look into social media too much and what people write.

“You’ve got to perform for your club and if you make the manager happy, then that’s the most important thing.”

Explaining his Riverside jig, Lingard added: “I promised my friend I’d do something involving a flute.

“It is just this song that came out by Drake.”
