Vine: Can anyone attempt to explain Peter Crouch’s goal celebration after scoring against Newcastle?

Nope? Us neither.

The beanpole striker headed home early in the first half at the Britannia Stadium to increase the pressure on Newcastle and under-fire manager Alan Pardew and marked the goal with one of the odder goal celebrations we’ve seen over the years.

It appears as if he’s mimicking a talking motion of some sort but we can’t help but think that he’s made himself look a small bit ridiculous.

Care to explain Peter?

Update: Crouch explained to Sky afterwards that the celebration was targeted at a Geordie mate of his; whether or not that makes it any less embarrassing we're not so sure.
