Sheffield Wednesday’s Moses Odubajo appeared to celebrate with Nottingham Forest goal-scorer Lewis Grabban in Tuesday’s Championship match at the City Ground.

Grabban had put Forest 2-0 up with an 87th minute strike, immediately after which Odubajo seemed to high-five him while grinning.

Yes this really doesn't look good at all.

The moment has proved to be a source of controversy with sections of the Owls fan base, whose team lie bottom of the table under manager Tony Pulis.

However, Odubajo moved to clarify what happened in a series of posts on social media, claiming he’d assumed the goal would be ruled out for a foul.

The loss is frustrating for myself and the team. I would never high 5 another player for scoring against us. I said to Grabban no way is that a goal because of the foul and laughed it off thinking the goal wouldn’t stand. 1/3

We’re bottom of the league. No one at the club wants relegation and there’s no chance I would celebrate a goal that keeps us at the bottom. 2/3

Out of context, videos can be misconstrued. I hope I’ve cleared it up with the fans who doubted my commitment to the team. 3/3
