Photo: Former Leeds United captain Ross McCormack appears to accidentally celebrate Lewis Cook wondergoal

Good timing makes it look like Ross McCormack piled in the Leeds celebration.

Leeds United took on Fulham tonight in the Championship. That meant facing off against several former Leeds players, such as Matt Smith, Andy Lonergan and Ross McCormack.

The Scot was of course the club's main goal-getter for a few seasons at Elland Road. He was also their captain. Leeds eventually sold him to Fulham for big money, but McCormack seemed to forget for a moment this evening that he was a Fulham player.

So used to celebrating goals at Elland Road he appeared to be piling into the celebrations after Lewis Cook scored an incredible equaliser for Leeds.

Here is the picture in question...

Cook's strike from 40 yards was the equaliser for Leeds after Cairney, formerly a youngster at Leeds, had given the away side the lead.

But Cook's sensational strike, his first at Elland Road and only his second overall for Leeds, saw matters level.

As for the picture, it would seem just a wonderful piece of coincidental proximity from the celebrating Leeds players and the Scottish striker.

That or Cook's goal was so good, McCormack decided to get involved.
