Maxi Rodriguez

The former Liverpool man was on target for Newell's Old Boys with a goal that prompted a familiar response from the man on commentary duties.

Maxi Rodriguez has scored plenty of memorable goals during his career to date but few have prompted the kind of response he received after netting in Argentina this weekend.

On target for Newell's Old Boys in their 1-0 victory over San Martin San Juan, the former Liverpool man's goals was a cause of celebration for any number of reasons.

For starters, in giving the Argentine giants the lead Rodriguez put Newell's on course for a first win in nine competitive games.

Secondly, there was the fact that the goal game when La Lepra were already down to 10 men, following the dismissal of defender Victor Lopez just four minutes into the second half.

Then there was the quality of the goal itself, with Maxi latching on to a sublime through pass and finishing with a perfectly-timed lofted finish that beat the on-rushing goalkeeper.

But few could have expected the goal to prompt this kind of joyous a response from the Argentine commentator involved.

Maxi Rodriguez scored 17 in 72 outings for Liverpool during a three-season stay at Anfield and though that tally included Premier League hat-tricks against Birmingham City and Fulham, Martin Tyler never reacted to any of those goals quite like this.
