The Brazilian international didn’t take the criticism well online, however, responding with ‘cry more’ on Twitter.

The former Everton man had been caught juggling the ball during the encounter with Steve Cooper’s promoted outfit – an action the ex-Red suggested should have earnt the attacker a booking.

To be completely fair, it’s the kind of showboating that would probably go down quite well at Anfield if a Liverpool player had attempted to waste time to ensure a win, though we can certainly understand the frustration around it from an opposition perspective.
