Alan Hutton has had a pretty decent start to his Spurs career and clearly he was rumoured to be heading out the Ibrox door for some time before he was finally pushed out!
“It got to the stage where they were saying, ‘Just go’. I’ll not tell you who but they were saying, ‘Go down, you’ll enjoy it. Yeah, you can stay at Rangers and you’ll win things and play in the Champions League every year, but are you going to progress as a player? To do that you have to go down south’.” (Sunday Times)
And go down South he did and clearly Walter Smith’s loss is Juande Ramos’s gain. The Scottish international looks very assured at White Hart Lane and should be a mainstay that the club can build on as they attempt to push on up the table.
