Saido Berahino being 'professional' by not celebrating
West Brom striker Saido Berahino has said he was acting "professionally" by not celebrating his four-goal haul in the FA Cup win against Gateshead.
Berahino, 21, scored an 11-minute hat-trick before grabbing his fourth in West Brom's 7-0 win in the third round.
"I was just handling business and acting professionally and that's it," said Berahino, who has been linked with a January move away from the club.
"There's no need for me to explain myself on not celebrating goals."
Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing the England Under-21 international, who has scored 13 goals this season.
In December, the Baggies described reports linking the striker with a £23m move to Liverpool as "entire fabrication".
"I just have to do what I do on the pitch," said Berahino. "I'm a West Bromwich Albion player and I've just got to perform for them and try to get as many goals as I can and contribute to wins.
"It's not really difficult because I just ignore the stories and I don't really read anything into it.
"Newspapers have said bad things about me so I'm not really fussed what they have to say about where I'm going or what will happen. I just ignore it all."
