Spurs fans react as Gedson Fernandes scores on Galatasaray debut

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Gedson Fernandes after the former Spurs loanee marked his Galatasaray debut with a goal.

With that in mind, here is how some of the Spurs fans reacted to his debut goal…
