Erling Haaland gets hilarious meme treatment online after his four-letter referee rage... with the Man City striker mocked up as Beverly Hills and The Scream

Memes of Erling Haaland are lighting up social media after his outburst at referee Simon Hooper during Manchester City's 3-3 draw with Tottenham.

Haaland was incandescent at Hooper when he pulled play back for a free-kick while Jack Grealish ran through towards goal in the dying moments, having given advantage after a foul on Haaland.

His livid expressing while remonstrating with Hooper is already an iconic photo, encapsulating the emotional stresses of elite sport while also shining a light on the abuse officials receive.

It's little surprise that internet creatives have pounced on the opportunity to produce memes as a result, making the most of Haaland's dramatic expression.
