WATCH: An Emotional Joe Hart Speaks After Making What Could Be His Final City Appearance

The fans honoured their goalkeeper...

Heart

City took on Steaua Bucharest tonight already virtually assured of a place in the Champions League group stages. Here's how the evening panned out...

With City 5-0 up from the first leg, the night appeared to be about one man...

People got lyrical...

And we hope this was a pun rather than atrocious spelling...

Back to the small matter of the match and Pep wasn't happy with what he was seeing...

But he wasn't the only one to be fair... 

Some players were getting the brunt of the criticism...

Before one somewhat redeemed himself by heading home the game's only goal...

Attention then turned back to matters of the Hart...

On a more serious note, there was drama of a different kind when Kelechi Iheanacho went down injured...

Before the Nigerian was stretchered off and appeared to be okay...

Which led to the final whistle and the man of the hour finally speaking out...

So City through to the Champions League groups and Hart leaving with dignity. A fitting final tribute...
