Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez has started to stick his fingers in his ears after scoring.

Newcastle United fans are not happy with Ayoze Perez for his goal celebration, which appears to have become his trademark now.

Perez has had to deal with some criticism from the St. James’ Park crowd this season, after struggling to score in the opening weeks of the campaign.

However, Perez has seemingly hit back at his critics when scoring, by putting his fingers in his ears.

The Newcastle striker netted his side’s third goal in their match against Cardiff City on Saturday.

But not all Newcastle supporters were best pleased with the way that Perez responded after hitting the back of the net.

Perez now has two goals in his last two appearances, and Rafael Benitez will be hoping that he is starting to hit form.

Newcastle have lacked a prolific scorer this season, so if Perez can start getting among the goals it would be a major boost.

Newcastle are next in action on Saturday when they take on Watford at St. James’ Park.
