Crystal Palace: Fans rave over former player Dean Gordon - Crystal Palace

A lot of Crystal Palace fans are discussing former player Dean Gordan, after a post on Twitter discussed the defender’s time at the club.

The left-back played for the club from 1991-1998, making 218 appearances, via Soccerbase, and even managed to score 23 goals along the way, including a hat-trick in the first half of a game away at West Bromwich Albion. He claimed the match ball back in December 1995, in a 3-2 victory two days before Christmas, via redandbluearmy.

The first was a penalty and he would double his tally, again from the penalty spot. The third resulted from a corner which Gordan managed to head in over the defender on the line. When recalling the fantastic game, he said it was a “a magic moment for him”, via redandbluearmy.

Defenders scoring hat tricks is very rare, but the Palace faithful have seen it more recently, as Danny Butterfield scored a perfect hat-trick, (a goal with his head, his left foot and his right foot), against Wolves in the FA Cup in February 2010, via thesefootballtimes.

Here is what fans had to say about the player following the post, with one describing him as “fantastic”:
