WATCH: Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson’s passionate celebration as Sheffield United beat Preston – before he shuts down fan who questions his haircut 

In the build up to this afternoon's game against Preston, Dean Henderson admitted to the assembled media that he loves life at Bramall Lane.

And the on-loan Manchester United man did nothing to hide that fact this afternoon, when he celebrated wildly following David McGoldrick's late winner ... and then had Unitedites smiliing that little bit more with a cheeky tweet hitting back at a visiting fan questioning his haircut!

The Blades move up to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship with the victory, while Preston dropped to the foot of the table after a five-goal thriller.

McGoldrick grabbed a late winner for United in a standout performance which also saw him claim an assist for the game's opener. Billy Sharp and Chris Basham had put United 2-0 ahead, before Preston hit back to 2-2 - and McGoldrick converted the winner, sending Bramall Lane into raptures.

After a now-trademark kneeslide, Henderson ended up in the fans in the G and H blocks of the South Stand and after giving his gloves away to a fan at the final whistle, replied to a tweet from Preston fan Ben Winstanley, which read "Worst haircut in the championship goes to Dean Henderson."

The goalkeeper's reply was simple. "[The] three points go to Sheff U," with a kissing face emoji for good measure.

Ahead of the Preston game, Henderson spoke to journalists about the importance of the team spirit in the United camp – and why he would run through brick walls for Blades boss Chris Wilder.

"There is probably nothing more important in a club than all the lads being tight, sticking together, being friends and wanting to do well for each other and wanting success for each other," he said.

"And obviously, there's the manager on top of that. Me and John Egan are always making jokes when he says 'come on.' But you will run through brick walls for him as you know how passionate he is and how much he wants the club to do well. It is outstanding. Seriously."
