It’s felt like an eternity since Gareth Barry was last seen playing first-team football, but on Saturday the veteran midfielder returned to the pitch for a dramatic occasion.

The 38-year-old midfielder was a second half substitute for the Albion in what was to be a tense 2-1 win for the hosts as Charlie Austin secured the three points for Slaven Bilic’s side late on with a penalty to ensure West Brom remain top of the pack in the Championship table.

It was a dramatic night for supporters, but the return of Barry to the pitch was a welcome sight for plenty of fans at the stadium as well as on social media, with the former Everton midfielder playing his first match for West Brom this season as well as for the first time since March after suffering a long-term injury.

Here’s what some West Brom supporters had to say about Barry’s return to the pitch on Twitter…
