After finding the net Bailey tore off his shirt to reveal a message to the late Twitch streamer Gregg.

It read: “Forever Love Steffi Gregg”

Bailey joined Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling in paying tribute to the Jamaican social media star, who sadly passed away in August.

Man City and England winger Sterling marked his latest Three Lions goal against Hungary with a similar message on his shirt.

Sterling then shared several pictures of his goal celebration on Twitter, captioning them with a love heart and prayer emoji and the words: “This one was for you SVG.”

Gregg was a Twitch streamer whose death on August 31 shocked all of Jamaica.

She was also a well-known businesswoman and socialite and popular member of her community of Upper St Andrew in the country’s capital, Kingston.

Bailey made his tribute following his first goal for Villa since joining from Bayer Leverkusen last month.

The Jamaica international moved to Villa Park as part of preparations for life after Jack Grealish after the former skipper joined Sterling at the Etihad.

Bailey was booked despite the tribute, with ref Craig Pawson showing him a yellow card for removing his shirt.
