Many Crystal Palace fans have been reacting warmly on Twitter to an official club message wishing former defender Damien Delaney a happy birthday.
Becoming an important player within the heart of the Eagles rear-guard, the former Republic of Ireland international went on to register 17 goal contributions in 193 appearances for the club; ten goals and seven assists [Transfermarkt].
Will Crystal Palace stay up in 2021/22?
Retiring at the age of 37-years-old [OTB Sports], the Irishman undoubtedly holds a special place in the heart of many Crystal Palace supporters due to his contribution at Selhurst Park.
Most notably, his crucial role in the 2012/13 season when his ex-employers gained promotion from the play-offs will always be remembered, keeping a clean sheet in a 1-0 defeat of Watford [The Guardian].
Now celebrating his 40th birthday today, no wonder loads of Crystal Palace diehards took to Twitter to give him their best wishes.
CPFC fans react:
Replying to the Crystal Palace FC Official Twitter account, here is how some supporters summed up their feelings on Delaney’s special day:
