Oztekin opened the scoring for his side after 12 minutes and ran over to two officers and celebrated with them.

A number of civilians alongside 30 officers lost their lives in two separate attacks in Istanbul in the aftermath of Besiktas' 2-1 victory over Bursaspor.

Galatasaray captain Selcuk Inan also brought an officer onto the field to honour the victims of the tragedy during the clash against Gaziantepspor.

Oztekin added a second for Galatasaray after 66 minutes, before Abdullah Elyasa Sume pulled one back for Gaziantepspor.

However, Oztekin completed his hat-trick late on as Galatasaray secured a 3-1 victory on home soil.
