‘Coming through with the Mike Dean energy’: On loan Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster cheekily shows yellow card to referee during goalscoring display in Swansea’s draw at Preston
- Rhian Brewster showed a yellow card to the referee in Swansea’s draw at Preston
- The forward scored the equalising goal for the Swans in a 1-1 draw at Deepdale
- But the 19-year-old was himself booked in the second half for a bad foul
On loan Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster had an eventful afternoon on Saturday as Swansea drew 1-1 at Preston.
Not only did Brewster bundle in the equalising goal at Deepdale, he also had spectators in fits of laughter when he showed a yellow card to referee Geoff Eltringham.
Eltringham had inadvertently dropped the card and Brewster, who scored his second goal in his fourth Swans appearance, emulated Paul Gascoigne by theatrically thrusting the card towards the official.

And the 19-year-old made light of the incident by retweeting footage on Twitter, accompanied by the caption: ‘Coming through with the Mike Dean energy.’
Brewster, who is under contract at Liverpool until 2023, tapped in from Andre Ayew’s cross on 33 minutes, just five minutes after Scott Sinclair had given the hosts the lead.
But it wasn’t all positive for the England Under-21 international as Eltringham was the one showing him a yellow card just ten minutes into the second half.
The forward was arguably fortunate to avoid a red card after he appeared to raise both feet in a challenge on North End midfielder Ben Pearson.
The draw leaves Swansea four points off the play-offs in eighth place while Preston stand one point and a place above their opponents in the Championship table.
