David Gold jokes that Darren Randolph won't get his wages after Liverpool win

West Ham United Gate

The West Ham co-owner was in good spirits after his side's historic 3-0 triumph at Anfield.

West Ham United co-owner David Gold has joked that 28-year-old goalkeeper Darren Randolph won't get his wages after his side's 3-0 win at Liverpool - because he didn't have a save to make, according to the club's official website.

Indeed, Gold was in high spirits after the historic victory. And it came at a valuable time for the businessman considering the amount of criticism both he and David Sullivan have received from fans recently over a failure to recruit new signings.

West Ham are still short of a home win but their away form has simply been phenomenal - as Liverpool found out on Saturday afternoon.

He told the West Ham site: "It was a well deserved victory and there was nothing fortunate about it. I cannot tell you how excited I am and we have made history.

"I spoke to Darren Randolph and joked he will not get his wages because he didn't have to make a save!!"

After the international break, West Ham will be hoping for some stability after two home losses but two away wins.

The Hammers will have the perfect chance to open their account for the season at Upton Park, though, up against Newcastle United.

Liverpool, however, need to move swiftly on from an embarrassing defeat. While Gold jokes about docking Randolph's wages, it wouldn't be unfair of the Reds to dock the pay of their whole squad after that debacle...
