David Luiz had no hesitation in celebrating after he scored for PSG on his first return to Stamford Bridge, but said sorry to Chelsea fans after the match.

The former Chelsea defender lined up in the starting XI for the French champions and enjoyed an eventful match that involved pretending to be head-butted by Diego Costa.

But it was his 86th minute goal that enabled him to be where he likes to be - the centre of attention.

Just like Danny Welbeck, who celebrated for Arsenal after scoring against former club Manchester United on Monday night, Luiz enjoyed himself after finding the back of the net with a thumping header to make it 1-1.

The Brazilian, who has long been likened to Simpsons character Sideshow Bob for his wild hair, ran around the back of the goal before jumping up in the air in delight.

Predictably, the internet went wild (as you can see below), but after the match Luiz apologised for his actions.

"I think we played a great game," Luiz told Sky Sports 5. "When we lost Ibra, our best player, you say 'keep it simple'. Play the ball to feet and keep possession as we need to score to qualify. It was amazing tonight the spirit. Every single player gave everything.

"I finished at Chelsea and then I got a great opportunity from PSG - they gave me a great opportunity to continue my career and I was very happy at Chelsea and won titles here but I finished and then I respect everyone.

"It was good for me to score. I said before I didn't celebrate but there as so much emotion I cannot control (it) and sorry because I celebrated because of the emotion but I am so happy to qualify."
