What is it with goalkeepers at the moment? Yesterday a video emerged of one hapless goalkeeper who saved a penalty, started to celebrate, only to watch on in horror as the ball spun back into the net - and now we have this guy.

Most 'keepers are pretty pumped up after they save a spot-kick, but this Azerbaijani ace perhaps took things a little too far.

After saving - pretty impressively we'd say - a penalty he seemingly made an obscene gesture at members of the opposing team - prompting the referee to hand him his marching orders.

Check out the video - bought to our attention by the good chaps over at The World of Sport - above!
