The 18-year-old sensation netted his sixth league goal of the Championship campaign to add to his 11 assists, but it was the celebration that followed that really endeared himself further to Kopites.
After thinking past two defenders before firing home, Elliott removed his playing shirt to reveal a top with ’96 YNWA’ emblazoned on the front – one day after the 32nd anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

The heartfelt gesture was well received across social media, with hoards of Reds jumping to praise the teenager, not only for his performance but also for his awareness of the club from which he is out on loan.
