Nottingham Forest flop Rafik Djebbour celebrates Cypriot title win ... with a machine gun!

The Algerian international certainly has an interesting way of celebrating.

It is fair to say that Nottingham Forest fans probably do not have overly fond memories of Rafik Djebbour's time at the club.

The Algerian arrived full of promise. He had scored an incredible 45 goals in 81 games at Greek giants Olympiakos prior to his arrival at the City Ground.

He went on to join Turkish side Sivasspor, before Forest snapped him up from Olympiakos in January 2014.

He turned out to be a monumental flop. He fell out with the coaching staff in Nottingham and, despite a debut goal v Yeovil Town, it was his only strike for the club in eight appearances.

In the summer his loan from Olympiakos became obligatorily permanent, but he was subsequently released by mutual consent.

He went on to join Cypriot side APOEL Nicosia, where he has had a far more productive campaign

APOEL have been crowned champions of the Cypriot top flight this weekend. They defeated Ermis Aradippou 4-2, with Djebbour scoring twice, to clinch the title on the final day of the season. They can add that trophy to the Cypriot Cup - which they won on Wednesday night.

But Djebbour certainly had an unconventional way of celebrating. He decided to grab hold of a Kalashnikov machine gun to highlight how he 'shot down' the opposition this season.

Not the most responsible way to celebrate and Forest fans will be glad they don't have to deal with this character on a weekly basis.

Although, saying that, he has scored 17 goals this season!
