Premier League referee Mike Dean goes wild celebrating, Tranmere reach League Two Play-Off Final at Forest Green Rovers. Football fans often find themselves wondering who referees support when their team is on the end of a decision they don’t like. Well, we’ve been left in no doubt about Mike Dean’s allegiances.

He has previously been removed from Liverpool matches over concerns of impartiality, as he is from the Wirral, and he showed no signs of professional balance at the New Lawn, having never denied he supports Tranmere. Tranmere fan Dean was in the away end as Rovers drew 1-1 at Forest Green Rovers, ensuring safe passage on aggregate after winning the first leg 1-0.

With a day off, Dean took in the second leg of the League Two semifinal playoff between Forest Green and Tranmere Rovers from the stands at New Lawn in Gloucestershire and we will let the video below tell you the rest. Rovers are aiming for back-to-back promotions, having gone up through the National League play-offs last season and will face Newport County at Wembley on Saturday, 25 May.

But the celebrations on the pitch at The New Lawn were nothing compared to those in the stands, and the Sky Sports cameras managed to pick out one supporter in particular who had hauled himself onto the guard rails in celebration. Dean stood on the terrace railing at the New Lawn after Tranmere’s 1-1 draw secured a 2-1 aggregate victory.
