The strange journey of Tim Sherwood's tenure at the helm of Tottenham may have concluded with his strangest antics yet. 

Apparently a Spurs supporter had been heckling the gaffer at White Hart Lane for weeks, so Sherwood finally responded in a way no one expected: He invited the heckler down to the bench and even gave him his gilet!

Sherwood's response in the aftermath was just as good as good.

2/2 Sherwood "He's nicked my gilet too! Football is all about the fans. It's only friendly banter and we should have more in the game."
