The Kenya international, who spent two seasons at Celtic Park, gave Maurico Pochettino’s side a 2-1 lead, despite Dele Alli being sent off during the first-half.
Alli saw red for a horribly-timed tackle, after Harry Kane had put the ball into his own net to cancel out Christian Eriksen’s opener for Spurs.
However, Wanyama was on hand to put the finishing touch on a lovely run from Eriksen to increase Tottenham’s chance of progressing:

Wanyama wasn’t heralded for his finishing during his time in the Scottish Premiership, scoring just 10 goals in 61 appearances from the base of the Hoops midfield.
However, he’s gone from strength to strength since leaving Scotland, first moving to St. Mary’s for £12.5 million before completing a transfer to Spurs for £11 million in the summer.
Needless to say, Wanyama might be about to get a hell of a lot of Dele Alli-loving if Spurs can hold out and progress to the next round.
