If the title race is decided, his final appearance could be on May 22nd Liverpool v wolves or Manchester City v Aston Villa – so he can enjoy the carnival atmosphere.

All other Prem games that day are suspended for a round of applause in the 22nd minute to honor Dean’s 22 years as a Select Group umpire.

The Professional Game Match Officials Limited commissioned the gold card bust.

A PGMOL spokesman said: “Mike has been an icon in public service for the past two decades and it’s important to celebrate his retirement appropriately.

“He will hate the excitement but we hope this will be a blueprint for ending the careers of top referees and assistants in the future.

“All we want is consistency.”

Dean is by far the most experienced judge on PGMOL.

And since the rulers of the game don’t want the ghost of him to humbly disappear from the center, they make sure he bids his farewell at a GoldenHigh.

Only the likes of Martin Atkinson, 50, and Andre Marriner, 51, who both made their Prem debuts in 2004, come close.
