Gary Lineker's Priceless Reaction To Harry Kane Breaking Alan Shearer's Record
To think, some people are still convinced that Harry Kane is a one-season wonder.
The England international proved his doubters wrong once again on Saturday afternoon, scoring a hat-trick against a struggling Southampton side at Wembley.
In the meaning, Kane smashed Alan Shearer's 22 year old Premier League record for the most goals in a calendar year - that's more goals in 52 weeks than anyone else in Premier League history.
Shearer, who set the record of 36 goals back in 1995 when he was playing for Blackburn Rovers, has since received plenty of stick on Twitter.
Even his good friend and Match of the Day colleague Gary Lineker reminded him of Kane's achievement.
It took him just 22 minutes to get the goal he needed, heading home from a Christian Eriksen free kick to put Spurs 1-0 up and Lineker produced a classic tweet.
Kane has also equalled Messi's total of 54 goals in all games in 2017. Bloody remarkable stuff.- Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 26, 2017

He shouldn't of been playing against Burnley or Southampton if he'd been correctly sent off against City. Definitely a straight red.- Paul Laggett (@Laggett_89) December 26, 2017
