In November, 2008 he joined Tottenham in a coaching capacity and then worked with Tim Sherwood with the Development Squad. He was Sherwood’s assistant last season when he replaced Andre Villas-Boas as manager.

Having joined Spurs from Sheffield United, Walker returned to Sheffield but then had six months on loan with Queen’s Park Rangers in the Championship. He joined Aston Villa to gain Premier League experience before stepping into the Tottenham team in 2011.

Ossie Ardiles

After leaving Tottenham in 1988, Ossie Ardiles played for Blackburn Rovers and then Queen’s Park Rangers. It was a short spell at Loftus Road, lasting only eight League matches.

Roger Morgan

Queen’s Park Rangers successful team of the mid-1960s contained the Morgan twins, Ian and Roger, who played on the wings. In February, 1969 Tottenham split them up by signing Roger for £110,000. He then made his debut at Loftus Road against his former club playing on the left wing against his brother who was on Rangers right wing. The match ended 1 – 1 with Jimmy Greaves scoring. Morgan was unfortunate that his time at Tottenham was blighted by injury which led to his eventual retirement in the summer of 1973.
