Veteran West Brom goalie Dean Kiely was not only the best player on the park against Wigan on Saturday, he also proved that even in the midst of a relegation dogfight you can still play with a smile on your face. Kiely was first on the scene when the referee’s assistant went down with an injury.

After checking the stricken official was not dying, Kiely picked up his discarded flag and signalled for the linesman to be substituted! Thankfully, the referee took this in good humour and can be seen laughing along in the background.
