Goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne deployed unusual tactics to help his Sydney FC side secure the Hyundai A-League Championship on penalties against Perth Glory.

After 120 minutes of goalless action, Redmayne took his place between the sticks for a penalty shootout that would decide the destination of the trophy.

With three penalties successfully converted, the Sydney stopper decided to dance around on his goal line before making a stunning save from Perth’s Andy Keogh.

He proceeded to deny Brendon Santalab immediately afterwards to put Sydney just one penalty from victory, which Reza Ghoochannejhad duly scored.
