thumbnail Hello,

The Sierra Leone international insists that as long as he is still scoring he will continue to use the celebration despite the Tottenham star successfully trademarking the gesture

Sporting Kansas City attacker Kei Kamara has confirmed he will continue to use his customary "heart-shaped hands" celebration despite it being trademarked by Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

The 28-year-old enjoyed a brief spell on loan at Norwich City last season, following an unsuccessful trial at Stoke City, and has since returned to the MLS where he hopes to recapture his goalscoring form after netting just once in 11 games for the Canaries

And Kamara, who regularly uses the hand gesture after scoring, is adamant he will continue to use it, while also praising Bale's initiative in trademarking the celebration.

"Damn, why didn't I think of that?" Joked the forward to MLSsoccer.com, "I wish I had people behind me to say 'lets do this,' but it is what it is."

The Sierra Leone-born forward has spent the past three years setting up the Heart Shaped Hands Foundation to help the poverty stricken children of his homeland with school fees and scholarships, and says Bale's trademark will have no bearing on his charity.

"I heard he is trade marking it but obviously adding his number 11 to it. I've still got my Heart Shaped Hands Foundation, and we are still working on that here, for the past two years, trying to launch it," Kamara continued.

"But that is not going to affect me, because I wouldn't have a Heart Shaped Hands with a No.11 in the middle.

"It's amazing for him to think of it and for his PR men to say, 'Do this,' its a worthwhile thing and for him to claim it, it's a risk.

"He is a young guy, and it he's going to take a risk that's going to make him a lot of money, why not?"
