Shane McGuigan does a 'Sueey' Cristiano Ronaldo would be proud of after winning MOTM

'Sooooeyy' said Shane McGuigan, as he accepted his man-of-the-match award.

Cristiano Ronaldo would have been proud listening to him, and he would have been proud watching him too. The Portuguese is renowned for his 'Suuiii' celebration after scoring and over in Croke Park today, where he kicked 1-8 (0-1 free,) Shane McGuigan had plenty of reason to celebrate.

McGuigan wasn't the only one who lit the Drumcondra venue up. In a first half where Conor Glass covered every blade of grass, kicking two points and ripping the net with an unstoppable goal, the cameras couldn't help but focus on him.

That focus however, was taken a little too literally whenever the midfielder couldn't stop his own speedy strides, having been pushed by Keelan Sexton, and accidentally collided head first into the cameraman behind the goal.

In what must have looked like a rampaging bull heading horns first at you in 3D, the Glen native took camera, man, and all as he tried to stop himself.

After what initially looked like a heavy hit, Derry's number eight made sure that the poor man was okay, and showed great respect in doing so.

Thankfully, both the Oakleaf star and the poor man who was just earning his living, were perfectly okay, and no damage seem to be done to the equipment either.

Although he could do no wrong with the football, this wasn't his only slip up as he was high giving young Derry fans coming out the tunnel before tripping over the last step.

Glass saw the funny side, and was laughing about it with Brendan Rodgers, who as a Slaughtneil man, might secretly have taken more pleasure from that as he should.

Not everyone was unscathed however, as Glass and his teammates absolutely destroyed Clare, kicking three goals in the first half alone, and building a lead that was too big to catch in the end.

Despite a 10 minute spell when Clare kicked 1-3, including an unbelievable goal from Pearse Lillis, but in what seemed to be a competition for goal of the day Paul Cassidy went down the other end and kicked an even better one.

The goals and the class continued in the second hand for Derry as dismantled the Munster team to book their place in the semi-finals of the All-Ireland.
