Danny Rose got plenty of stick from Spurs fans for a perceived attempt to engineer a move away from the club in the summer.
But he showed a genuine touch of class when Harry Kane scored what looked like being the winner in a pulsating FA Cup tie against Rochdale.
While most of Spurs’ players ran off to celebrate with Kane, Rose peeled off and shouted Ryan Mason’s name down the camera.
He gave the lens a kiss before going over the celebrate with his team-mates.
Mason was forced to retire after struggling to make a full recovery from a shocking head injury suffered against Chelsea in January 2017.
A brilliant show of support from Rose towards his former team-mate.
Mason was clearly watching on as he tweeted following the celebrations.
At the time it looked like Kane’s penalty, on the ground he made his Football League debut, would be enough to take Spurs through to the next round.
Ian Henderson put Rochdale ahead at half-time before goals from the impressive Lucas Moura and Kane turned the game around.
But there was still time for the magic of the FA Cup to take hold.
Substitute Steve Davies popped up in the 93rd minute to equalise and earn Rochdale a replay.
League One’s bottom side will head to Wembley, but first there’s a trip to Milton Keynes to take care of.
I love this game.
