Callum Wilson is hoping that the viral moment of Jacob Murphy mocking Southampton defender Duje Caleta-Car won't come back to bite Newcastle United on Tuesday.
Social media was sent into a frenzy last week when Magpies man Murphy was caught hilariously waving goodbye to Caleta-Car who was shown red for his second yellow card during the Carabao Cup first leg.
The clip was shared by thousands on social media, some seeing the funny side of the off-pitch banter and others branding it as not in the spirit of the game.
Speaking on the BBC Sounds' Footabller's Football Podcast last week, Newcastle striker Callum Wilson was asked all about it by West Ham forward Michail Antonio.
Wilson said: "He's a funny character. For him, coming on a sub and giving the team what they need with tracking back, that just summed up his character.
"The guy's been sent off and he's waving him off the field, he's like that every day giving jokes out. He's funny. It's made a bit of a thing on the internet."

Wilson did go on to admit that moments like that might give the Saints "a bit of motivation" as they look to overturn a 1-0 deficit at St. James' Park on Tuesday.
He added: "We were just laughing, but it will probably give them a bit of motivation going into the second leg which we want to limit. We've still got a job to do at St. James' Park. We'll back ourselves but it is going to be a tough game."
