Andre Gray's Last-Minute Winner Against Derby Is A 'Goal Of The Season' Contender

Andre Gray produced a moment of magic to score a last-minute winner against Derby County, smashing home a 'goal of the season' contender.

Gray starred as he came off the bench to inspire his team to victory at Pride Park on Monday.

Wayne Rooney's side took an early lead through Tom Lawrence, but his strike was cancelled out by Chris Willock.

Gray, who replaced Charlie Austin, entered the fray in the second half and marked his Championship outing with a sensational strike.

With his back against the goal, the 30-year-old impeccably controlled the ball with his knee before setting himself up.

He then struck a terrific volley into the back of the net, with Rams goalkeeper Kelle Roos rooted to the spot.

Don't be fooled by the rubbish commentary, Gray's finish is a genuine 'goal of the season' contender. Check it out below:

Gray's goal sent social media wild.

One tweeted: "That is the deadest commentary I've ever heard, for a 90 minute goal of the season contender winner."

A second wrote: "Brilliant goal, the commentary was terrible though, they didn't really react to a goal like that, contention for goal of the season for the championship 100%!"

A third added: "What a finish, should be in the Prem still."

The win moves the R's to third place in the league while Derby remain at the foot of the table.

Speaking after his side's victory on the road, Mark Warburton told BBC: "We let ourselves down in the first half with a soft goal and what we had to do was step it up in the second half, and we did that.

"The finishes showed quality. The equaliser was a good quality goal and Andre's reaction and the quality was outstanding.

"We had absolute respect for Derby who had a big result against Bournemouth and kept a clean sheet against Fulham. We had to meet a stern challenge tonight and I think we did that. All credit to them."
