Everyone connected with Swansea City will be delighted when waking up this morning, having recorded a 1-0 win over bitter rivals Cardiff City at The Liberty Stadium yesterday.
One player who is particularly delighted this morning is Wayne Routledge, who grabbed the assist for centre-back Ben Wilmot’s winner with a delivery from a well-worked corner.
The South Wales derby win was just Routledge’s second start of the Championship season, as he played a vital role on the wing to help Swansea get the three points they need to maintain a push for promotion back to the Premier League.
34 year-old Routledge has had his fair share of memorable moments in a Swansea shirt after signing for the club in 2011 from Newcastle United.
Was Routledge one of the standout performers in the South Wales derby?
During his eight years so far in the South of Wales, Routledge has made 267 appearances for the Swans under various managers and scored 29 goals on the road to becoming a cult hero amongst Swansea supporters.
Routledge has featured for many clubs during his long career so far, having pulled on the shirt of Crystal Palace, Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth, Fulham, Aston Villa, Cardiff City and QPR.
Here, we take a look at some of the best reaction to Routledge’s tweet following the game…
Who woke up with a smile on there face this morning..! 😁
