Charlie Taylor reveals all about his unusual celebration after first Leeds goal

The Leeds youngster admits he didn't quite know what he was doing - just that he was over the moon with his first goal for the club.

Charlie Taylor admits he 'didn't have a clue' what he was doing when celebrating his first ever goal for Leeds United, according to the club's official website.

The 21-year-old wheeled away in jubilation after netting for the Elland Road outfit at Wolves on Monday afternoon, a game Neil Redfearn's men went on to lose in a 4-3 thriller.

But Taylor says emotion got the better of him when he scored and stopped him from thinking clearly. As such, the Leeds youngster admits he rolled three different celebrations into one!

And it was a moment Taylor will never forget, he says.

"It was just a spur of the moment thing, I think I had about three celebrations in one. I didn’t have a clue what to do but it was just a great feeling," he explained.

"I can’t really explain the feeling when I scored. I’d been waiting a while to get my first ever professional goal. To do it for Leeds was extra special. It was a moment I’ll never forget."

The 21-year-old started out in Redfearn's senior side as a direct replacement for Stephen Warnock at left-back, who was sold to Derby County in January.

Since, though, Taylor has emulated Sam Byram in moving into a more advanced role. Recently, the left wing has belonged to the youngster at Elland Road and, with a goal now to his name, he is certainly making the position his own.

Next up for Taylor and co is Saturday afternoon's Championship clash with Cardiff City, with Leeds hosting the Welsh side at 3pm.
