Martin Skrtel is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury but that didn’t prevent the Slovakian defender from wildly celebrating Joe Allen’s winning penalty at the end of Liverpool’s Capital One Cup semi-final second leg against Stoke City.

In the moments after Allen’s winning spot-kick, which sent the Reds through to next month’s final at Wembley, one quick-thinking Liverpool fan turned his camera phone around to the private box where Skrtel and a few friends were watching from.

After hugging his mates, Skrtel then started banging on a door with his hands while roaring. The 31-year-old was clearly euphoric that Liverpool had made it to Wembley and fans will be delighted to see such a passionate reaction from one of their injured players.
