He was unmarked and his team were already 5-0 ahead, but that didn't stop Kolo Toure from going wild after scoring for Liverpool against Aston Villa.

The defender netted Liverpool's sixth goal at Villa Park as the visitors ran riot against the bottom of the table side. The Ivory Coast international was left unmarked for Jordan Henderson's corner and headed home from a central position.

Despite the plight of his opponents, Toure was in no mood to show any sympathy after finding the back of the net.

The former Arsenal player ran half the length of the pitch before sliding on his back to then be mobbed by his team-mates.


His delight may stem from the fact he hadn't score for club or country since January 2011, when he netted in a 4-3 win for Manchester City against Wolves. It meant it was his first goal for Liverpool.

The Aston Villa fans who left Villa Park in their droves after the goal may not have been impressed, but the celebration was certainly appreciated on Twitter...


The win for Liverpool moved them up to eighth in the Premier League.
