Crystal Palace fullback Van Aanholt scoffs at Alli goal celebration: I'm 28!

Crystal Palace fullback Patrick van Aanholt has enjoyed a dig at Tottenham ace Dele Alli and his goal celebrations.

The Crystal Palace left-back was called out on Twitter during an informal question-and-answer session to send a photo or video of him attempting 22-year-old Alli’s unique celebration.

The regular social media user responded: “I’m 28 years old next week, would rather read the Financial Times or summin.”

His dismissive attitude towards the celebration went down well on Twitter, gathering over 22,000 likes, 5,700 retweets and a whole host of replies.
