Holtby happy to make Klinsmann tribute with Spurs goal celebration

Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby says his goal celebration against Dinamo Tbilisi was a tribute to Jurgen Klinsmann.

Holtby replicated Klinsmann's famous swan dive after scoring in Thursday's Europa League win.

"I've seen it (that celebration) so many times, Jurgen was a legend here and to be able to do that at White Hart Lane was great," Holtby told the club's website .

"The fans totally understood it and I was thankful to get that moment. I was waiting for that goal for a long time. To score here was fantastic."
