Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was aiming to take home a third consecutive Golden Boot award for his scoring antics in the Premier League this season.
However, despite improving on his tally from last year with a 30-goal haul in the top flight, the England international was unable to finish as top scorer.
Instead, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, who traditionally plays as a winger, took home the individual award.
The Egyptian international ended the campaign with 32 goals in England’s top division, and also became the first player to score the most goals in a 38-game Premier League campaign.
The achievement added to the PFA Player of the Year award and Football Writers’ Footballer of the Year gong that Salah has already won.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable final day of the league season for Liverpool fans as they witnessed their star player make history, and also secured fourth place.
After the final whistle was blown, plenty of Reds fans decided to mock Kane on Twitter.
The 23-capped England striker caused controversy earlier in the campaign when Tottenham successfully appealed to the Premier League to have Christian Eriksen’s winner against Stoke City registered in his name.
The 24-year-old claimed that his teammate’s attempt from a free kick brushed against his shoulder before the ball hit the back of the net.

on behalf of @HKane I hereby declare a travesty has taken place. On my pet gerbil’s life I can promise you that Mr Kane did score 2 goals for #THFC but he also scored 3 for #LFC & 2 for #NUFC thus winning him the #goldenboot.
I expect this to be rectified immediately!

A moment of silence for Harry Kane. He's desperately jumping in front of everyone's shot thinking he only has one left to reach the Egyption KING! #LFC
