Charlie Austin in ‘shithouse’ celebration prior Andre Gray’s goal of the season contender

Charlie Austin earned praise in his ‘shithouse’ celebration prior Andre Gray’s goal of the season contender to help QPR beat Derby.

A stunning 90th-minute finish from substitute Andre Gray took Mark Warburton’s side up to third in the Championship with a big victory over Wayne Rooney’s side.

Gray was applauded after his goal saw him turn his back to goal and whacked a powerful right foot at the ball, for it to hit the back of the net leaving Rams goalkeeper Kelle Roos rooted to the spot.

Tom Lawrence had put Derby in front on the 10th minute before Chris Willock’s volley brought the R’s level five minutes into the second half.

Ilias Chair and Yoann Barbet were notable players to have wasted some excellent chances to put QPR in front, but up came Gray with wonderful volley, after Chair’s header had rebounded to him off the post.

The win takes them up to third, seven points behind second-placed Bournemouth. Derby however stay bottom with one point, 19 from safety following their combined 21-point deduction for breaches of EFL accounting rules and going into administration.

Charlie Austin is always one to show his emotion both on and off the pitch and on this occasion, he couldn’t help himself after QPR had made it 1-1.

The former Premier League striker played a big part in getting the equaliser, collecting the ball on the break before then sending it Willock’s way at the back post.

Austin took advantage of mocking those in the home stand nearest him, whilst also looking at a Sky Sports camera and after celebrating with his team-mates, and mimed a crying baby with a big smile on his face – just like Mbappe did a few years back.

Then Andre Gray produced a one of the most stunning moments of the season, scoring a last-minute winner to end what had been a great clash.

The 30-year-old, who is trying to get his career back on track, impeccably controlled the ball with his knee before setting himself up.

He then hit a beautiful volley into the back of the net, and forget the rubbish commentary when watching this back.


QPR manager Mark Warburton told BBC London 94.9: “We let ourselves down in the first half with a soft goal and what we had to do was step it up in the second half, and we did that.

“The finishes showed quality. The equaliser was a good quality goal and Andre’s reaction and the quality was outstanding.

“We had absolute respect for Derby who had a big result against Bournemouth and kept a clean sheet against Fulham. We had to meet a stern challenge tonight and I think we did that. All credit to them.”

Derby manager Wayne Rooney told BBC Radio Derby: “We started very well even before we scored, on the front foot.

“We scored the goal and we dropped back too quickly, didn’t get the press right like we worked on.

“I said to the lads at half-time the warning signs are there, we had to wake up, we had to be better. We were giving the ball away too easily.

“It’s a tough one to take but I think we got what we deserved.”
