Yaya Toure mocked after Man City players ignore him to celebrate with Willy Caballero

Yaya Toure didn't seem to have the best of Sunday afternoons, despite scoring the penalty that won Manchester City the League Cup.
The Ivorian midfielder, 32, coolly rolled home the winning penalty as City beat Liverpool at Wembley Stadium.
Toure, who has been linked with an exit from the club this summer, wheeled away in joyous celebration after scoring, hands in the air and taking his shirt off in delight.
Sadly for him, the Manchester City players ignored him, as you can see in the two videos below.

A couple of players start towards Toure before instead running straight for the real hero of the penalty shoot-out, goalkeeper Willy Caballero, who saved three penalties from Lucas Leiva, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana.
Only Fernandinho embraces the man who scored the winning kick.
Caballero, the 34-year-old Argentine who has played only 18 games for City in two years, even seemed to turn Toure off of celebrating with him, shaking his finger and head as if to say no.
We wouldn't want to speculate on why.
Caballero was later thrown up in the year by City players in celebration with Wilfried Bony lifting him on his shoulders. Toure was nowhere to be seen.
Later in the dressing room as City players continued to celebrate, the official Manchester City Twitter account accidently poured more fuel onto the fire, releasing an image that showed the full squad celebrating... and Toure on the periphery with a blank face and drink in hand.
Toure wasn't given the easiest time on social media...

Yaya Toure has just run twice as far in his celebration as he did in the whole of extra time. Hero.— Sport Witness (@Sport_Witness) February 28, 2016
Some say Yaya Toure is still celebrating on his own— Josh Hammersley (@josh_hammersley) February 29, 2016
With Pep Guardiola, the man who sold him from Barcelona in 2010 as he favoured Sergio Busquets, arriving at the Etihad in the summer, it remains to be seen what Toure will do next.
