Daniel James has been in good goalscoring form of late – but Manchester United teammate Luke Shaw has not been entirely impressed, it would seem.
James has scored five goals in his past 12 outings for United in all competitions.
The Wales international was on target against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League, which was followed by Premier League strikes against Leeds and Southampton.
The speedy winger then struck in the Europa League victory over Real Socieded, and also found the net in the league win against Newcastle.
The left-back said: “I said to Jamo: ‘We need to get you a new celebration because what you’re doing isn’t good enough!’
“He’s like a little kid isn’t he? He just doesn’t know what to do, he just runs about!”
Shaw was on target himself in United’s 2-0 derby victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
The defender struck the second goal shortly after half-time, doubling the lead given to the visitors by Bruno Fernandes ‘ early penalty.
The result took United back up to second in the Premier League table, though they still trail leaders City by 11 points.

“Hopefully, I can score soon and I want the fans in to celebrate because the lads were saying: ‘It’s not normal when you score!'”
