IPSWICH loan star Alan Mahon is enjoying his football so much that he plans to revive his favourite goal celebration.
If the Dubliner finds the net against Stoke at Portman Road tomorrow (kick-off 5.35pm) expect him to launch into an Irish jig.
He laughed: "I used to do it at Tranmere and Blackburn and it caught on with some of the lads. Even Marcus Bent copied it. It's based on the way my dad dances at weddings.
"But he said people back in Dublin were starting to take the mickey, so I dropped it. Now I'm thinking of bringing it back again."
Mahon, 25, admitted he was caught on the hop when he broke his Town duck to earn all three points at Bradford last week.
- 1 Teenager 'kicked and punched' by man during Ipswich assault
- 2 Cyclist left with 'potentially life-changing injuries' after Ipswich crash
- 3 Tragic loss of 'kind and gentle' Aayush at 17 devastated family
- 4 'I slept at the store' - Teen queues for 14 hours as Tim Hortons opens
- 5 Appeal to trace driver after cyclist knocked unconscious in crash
- 6 Thatch roof of cottage 'fully alight' in village near Needham Market

- 9 CCTV appeal after cash stolen from ATM dispensing tray at Ipswich store
- 10 Man dragged former partner from car and kicked her in assault
He said: "I didn't really know what to do when I scored, so it wasn't anything special. I hadn't scored for a while and it's not something you do in the reserves."
