The old 'run into the stands and applaud your goal' celebration has been resurrected in Lithuania

Trakai's Dzimtry Koub scored a late equalizer in their Lithuanian A Lyga match against league-leaders Zalgiris and he celebrated by running into the stands, sitting down in an empty seat, crossing his legs and politely applauding his goal. A somewhat bold move considering he did this at Zalgiris' stadium.

This isn't the first time this rare but wonderful goal celebration has been executed, though. Back in 2005, Matthew Russell of the then Castleton Gabriels (now Rochdale Town) did the same thing after scoring against FC United of Manchester even though his side was down 3-0 at the time.

Koub's celebration adds to a list a great ones from all over the world this season. Thierry Henry celebrated his first goal of the season by becoming a cameraman. The human bowling celebration from Estonia required a bit more planning and man power, though...

And in Italy one player raised things to a new level of unhinged insanity.

At this point, the only unique way to celebrate a goal left would probably be to do a performance of Cats the musical in its entirety.
