Bruno Guimaraes paid tribute to Newcastle United assistant manager Jason “Mad Dog” Tindall after the 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest.

The Magpies broke the deadlock on 10 minutes with a well-worked set piece straight from the club’s Benton training ground. Guimaraes initially seemed uninterested in the short corner to Kieran Trippier.

He then sprung to life, attacking the space to get on the end of Trippier’s cross to smash home an improvised volley. The move drew parallels to a similar move when Guimaraes scored against Brentford in the 5-1 win at St James’ Park last season.

Speaking post-match, the 26-year-old credited Tindall for the move, calling him “Mad Dog” - a moniker created by Newcastle fans on social media. Guimaraes - who bagged the winner from distance in the second half - also thanked Eddie Howe for giving him licence to get forward at the City Ground.

"It was a lovely goal,” he told Sky Sports about the opener. “One of the most beautiful in my career. I dedicate this goal to the Mad Dog because we worked on it in training. When I play as a six, I don't get the chance to play forward as much so I enjoyed playing high."

"I think I can play six, eight and 10. I played very well with the two goals. Thank you gaffer. To be honest with you, when I saw the ball come I didn't know whether to hit it with my left or right but it was a perfect finish."
