Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic picked up one of the more unusual bookings when he saw yellow for stripping off his shorts in celebration at his goal this weekend.

The Montenegrin striker  picked up the yellow card after he’d whipped off his shorts during Juventus’s match against Pescara.

Vucinic had slotted home a penalty to put his side on their way to victory, but he followed it up by removing his shorts and waving them over his head as he ran around the pitch in his pants.

His goal put Juve 1-0 ahead in the 72nd minute, and he doubled the lead six minutes later before Antonio Conte hauled him off, replacing the shorts-shy striker with Alessandro Matri.

10-man Pescara pulled one back in the 83rd minute, but Juventus held on to move 12 points clear of Napoli in the race for the Serie ‘A’ title.

Conte’s side are well on their way to a second successive title, but face a battle to progress in the Champions League following their 2-0 away defeat to Bayern Munich in the quarter-final first-leg.

The incredible shorts-stripping scenes can be watched here.
