Sheffield Wednesday Player Accused Of Celebrating Goal Against His Own Side


Sheffield Wednesday's Moses Odubajo has been accused of celebrating a goal against his OWN side after footage appears to show him 'high-fiving' Lewis Grabban following his strike for Nottingham Forest.

Complaints flooded in from Wednesday fans when Odubajo was seen embracing Grabban after his goal on Tuesday.

The Forest striker weaved his way into the box after a ricochet and tucked the ball into the back of the net.

He was greeted by the Wednesday defender who smiled and gestured towards him with supporters taking to social media to express their anger.

A Twitter user shared the footage of the exchange between Odubajo and Grabban with the caption: "SWFC Get this muppet sacked toneyt @Moses_28 Celebrating with the other team after conceding."

Odubajo swiftly took to Twitter to defend himself from the accusations and explained the incident.

He tweeted: "The loss is frustrating for myself and the team. I would never high 5 another player for scoring against us.

"I said to Grabban no way is that a goal because of the foul and laughed it off thinking the goal wouldn't stand. 1/3."

In another tweet, he wrote: "We're bottom of the league. No one at the club wants relegation and there's no chance I would celebrate a goal that keeps us at the bottom. 2/3."

He added: "Out of context, videos can be misconstrued.

"I hope I've cleared it up with the fans who doubted my commitment to the team. 3/3."

As Odubajo mentioned, Wednesday are bottom of the Championship with nine points on the board following their 2-0 defeat to Forest.

The Owls resume their faltering league campaign on Saturday against Coventry City.
