Mike Dean Goes Wild And Turns Into Tranmere Ultra After Reaching Play-Off Final
League Two side Tranmere Rovers are inches away from promotion after beating Forest Green in the play-off Semi-Final on Monday night, and one man in particular was over the moon with the result.
Premier League referee and all-round entertainer Mike Dean gave the world further reason to adore him last night after he was spotted celebrating like he'd just scored the winner in a World Cup final.
From letting Lewis Dunk know to leave the pitch by saying "off you pop!" to becoming the first referee to reach 100 red cards, it has been a sensational season for the 50-year-old.
And perhaps he gave us his greatest moment ever this week, establishing himself as a proper Tranmere Ultra.
If you haven't seen this yet then you're in for a treat. Take it away, Michael...

Dean's incredible antics at the final whistle certainly caught the eye on social media, as he continues to produce moment after moment for the cameras.
If you look up the definition of Box Office, a picture of Mike will suddenly appear.
Remember when you bumped into a teacher in public and couldn't believe they had a life outside of school?

I just don't buy that Mike Dean would do this after 19 seasons of patient characterisation. The writers have let us all down.
