Everton legend Duncan Ferguson was seen having a little celebratory boogie after securing his first victory as Forest Green Rovers manager.
Before the contest, Rovers were one of only two teams in the country, yet to have recorded a single victory in 2023. They headed into their daunting home match against then League One leaders Sheffield Wednesday.
However, against the odds, Jordan D’Andre Garrick’s first half goal proved to be enough to secure a vital three points in their battle to avoid relegation. Not that we needed the evidence, but Ferguson was certainly delighted with the result.

The imposing Scotsman was seen dancing in his car, while on face-time to a family member on the phone. He became known for his enigmatic celebrations during his stints as caretaker manager at Everton, but this could be the first time he has been spotted carrying on his delight in the car.
He was bopping and bouncing to the Pointer Sisters' classic anthem Slow Hand while smiling and laughing to the person on the phone.

"Don’t matter who you support just got to love Big Dunc," one fan wrote on social media. "I love him so much," another added. "Totally deserve to win some people may find it embarrassing, but he is amazing. Petition to make this our walk out song," laughed another, who gave a shout out to the Pointer Sisters.
"To be fair to big Dunc that’s a banger of a tune on a sunny Monday," commented another, before one other supporter said, "seeing big Duncan Ferguson, as you've never seen him before, will brighten up your afternoon. Trust us. Go on big Dunc give it some son."
While he was not quite singing and dancing into the camera, he definitely had a spring in his step when he did his post match interview. "I think everybody deserved that today,” he said to Sky Sports after the match. "I thought the boys put an incredible shift in.
It's a proud moment for myself and a proud moment for the fans to topple one of the big boys in the league. It's tough because you know you've got to be perfect for most of the game – and I thought we were.
“They hardly created any chances, other than long balls into our box, and we defended them well. We created the better chances and should have been two or three up. The boys were absolutely fantastic today."
