Liverpool's Bobby Duncan has returned to Twitter with a bang - although his antics are unlikely to impress those of a Manchester City persuasion.

Duncan left City to return to Liverpool - where his cousin, Steven Gerrard, achieved legend status - earlier this year.

And the 17-year-old striker returned to haunt his previous employers at the weekend, scoring the game's only goal - his eighth in as many domestic matches this season.


Duncan's celebration was as emphatic as his finish - holding a finger to his lips as he ran towards the Manchester City bench.

But the England youth international made no apologies afterwards, and even pinned a tweet - one of his first for three months - containing footage of the incident to his profile on the social media website.

And he later tweeted:

Duncan spent his final year at Manchester City sidelined after turning down the Premier League champions' offer of a new contract.

But Liverpool came along to rescue the Whiston-born talent, paying a reported fee of £200,000 to do so.

Was the Liverpool striker's celebration warranted?
