The best reactions on Twitter as Emile Heskey scores for Bolton

Emile Heskey Newcastle Jets

Emile Heskey scored on his return to senior English football for Bolton, prompting some hilarious responses on social media site Twitter.

There were some sniggers when Bolton announced that they had signed veteran marksman Emile Heskey, but he proved his doubters wrong with a debut goal.

Bolton's strike force had a combined age of 72, but they rolled back the clock as Eidur Gudjohnsen fed Heskey to slide home against Blackburn.

Heskey had earned a place in Bolton's senior squad by playing for the development team having been without a club since returning from Australia.

While many had suggested that the former Aston Villa striker was no longer up to the task, he didn't waste any time finding the net.

Here are some of the best reactions from social media site Twitter to Heskey's renaissance:
