Last night, Radamel Falcao lined up for Monaco against Tottenham as he faced off against English opposition for the first time since failed spells at Manchester United and Chelsea.

After being hyped up by teammates in the run-up to the Champions League encounter, the Colombian striker ultimately ended up putting in a fairly anonymous performance, the 'highlight' of which was a high and wide header in the second half.

And, throughout the game, the 30-year-old had to endure abuse from fans of the north London club who weren't about to let him forget his Premier League woes. However, Falcao did have the perfect response to the taunts as he walked down the Wembley tunnel at full-time of Monaco's 2-1 win. Scroll down this article to see the footage for yourself...

The video that has surfaced today shows the Premier League flop being goaded by Spurs fans who can clearly be heard chanting 'Chelsea reject! Chelsea reject!' as he makes his way for the changing room.

Cue Falcao's response, complete with a grin from ear to ear...

The image will be all too familiar for Spurs fans who have seen opposition players hold up the scoreline as they leave the pitch in the past.

Theo Walcott, of course, made his now infamous 2-0 hand gesture in a north London derby back in 2014 as he left the pitch on a stretcher amidst a barrage of abuse from Tottenham fans.

As for Falcao, having played his part in Monaco's impressive away win on Wednesday night he finally had a leg to stand on when responding to criticism from fans in the stands, and he wasn't about to pass it up.

Nevertheless, he could have silenced the hostile Spurs crowd much sooner had he managed to find the back of the net in the game itself.

But, after just five goals in 36 Premier League games over two seasons in England, the veteran striker's display on Wednesday night won't have done much to change United and Chelsea fans' opinion on him.

Failing to make any significant impact on the game, he was subbed off in the 77th minute.

And fans of the two Premier League clubs were quick to mock Falcao on social media last night as they kept at eye on the Spurs-Monaco result.

Ultimately, one hand gesture isn't going to silence Falcao's critics for long. The only way for him to do that is to start banging in the goals on a regular basis. Judging by last night's performance, that isn't going to happen any time soon.
