Newcastle ace Jacob Murphy earned his spot in the s***housery books after waving off Southampton ace Duje Caleta-Car after he got sent off.
The Magpies took on the Saints in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg when Caleta-car was given his marching orders with four minutes of normal time to go after receiving his second yellow card. And as he trudged off the pitch, the Croatian defender was waved off by wind-up merchant Murphy, to the delight of Toon fans.
But Murphy is not the only player – or manager – who has taken part in contentious behaviour on the pitch. And here, the Daily Star Sport takes a closer look at some of the most antagonising gestures from personnel in football.

Alisson mimicks Jordan Pickford
Everton Keeper Jordan Pickford wound up the Liverpool crowd when he wasted time by laying on the ball in what should've been a routine pick-up during the Merseyside derby last season.
But Reds stopper Alisson had the last laugh as he copied Pickford's time-wasting antics later on in the game when his side were 2-0 up, sending the Anfield faithful into a frenzy. Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher also got in on the action by tweeting an image of Alisson's reenactment of Pickford after the match.
Which player has done the worst s***housery antics? Let us know in the comments below
Patrick Vieira kicks Everton fan
Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira took shxxthousery to a whole new level when he kicked an Everton fan to the ground who verbally abused him during final game of last season.
The incident happened after Vieira secured Palace's Premier League safety. But the no-nonsense Frenchman wasn't penalised for his actions, and a slew of celebrities including Piers Morgan jumped to his defence.
Palace's supporters were also impressed with his kicking technique and created a chant to coin the moment. They debuted the anthem when Vieira addressed the fans at the end of the season, as he attempted to spark, chants of "Patrick Vieira, he kicks who he wants!" rang around Selhurst Park.
Andros Townsend copies Ronaldo's celebration
Everton star Andros Townsend got under the skin of Manchester United fans when he re-enacted Cristiano Ronaldo's infamous 'Siuuu' celebration when the sides clashed in October 2021.
Ronaldo had to watch from the bench when Townsend scored Everton's equaliser and then celebrated with his trademark gesture. But Toffees fans were delighted by Townsend's version and applauded his actions on social media.
Aaron Ramsdale winds up Leeds fans
Aaron Ramsdale's trolling antics made him a few quid richer when he was pelted with coins by Leeds fans in their 4-1 win over Arsenal in December 2021.
Ramsdale was targeted by the Elland Road collective after a hilarious exchange with them. The Whites' supporters then proceeded to hurl coins at the Arsenal keeper.
But instead of evading the money missiles, Ramsdale scooped all the pounds and left the pitch with around £17 in tow. Although it wasn't life-changing cash for the England ace, he could've used it for a takeaway or put it in a piggy bank.
Emi Martinez dances in front of Man Utd fans
Aston Villa keeper Emi Martinez endeared himself to the club's fans when he danced in front of Man United's fans when Bruno Fernandes missed a penalty last season.
When Fernandes hoofed the ball over the bar, Martinez quickly turned to the United fans and did a hilarious shimmy. Not only that, Martinez also dared Cristiano Ronaldo to take the penalty before Fernandes' blooper.
Emi Martinez dances in front of France fans
Martinez was up to his old tricks again when he danced in front of France's fans at the World Cup final last December.
Martinez was Argentina's hero when he saved penalty Les Bleus ace Kingsley Coman's spot kick attempt, and forced Aurelian Tchouameni to fire his penalty wide. And the Villa stopper rubbed salt into France's wounds when he raced over to their fans and danced, before Argentina went on to lift the coveted gold trophy.
Martinez caused further angst when he frolicked with the trophy in a lewd way, and unveiled a baby doll with France attacker Kylian Mbappe's face stuck to it during Argentina's World Cup parade.
Tottenham ace Richarlison caused fury when he decided to kick ups when his side faced Nottingham Forest in August last year. The Brazilian entered the match in the 74th minute when Spurs were 2-0 up, and with victory in sight, the attacker broke into an impromptu spell of keepy-uppy.
But not everyone was impressed with Richarlison's display including Forest star Brennan Johnson who swiftly clattered into the striker, receiving a yellow card in the process. Liverpool legend Didi Hammann also showed his disdain for Richarlison's antics and said: "Nothing to do with showboating. Should have been booked for unsportsmanlike conduct and restarted with a free kick to Forest."
But Spurs fans were having none of it and flocked to social media to applaud Richarlison for his skills.
