Ex-Rangers defender Alan Hutton has admitted he turned down the opportunity to sign for Tottenham on two occasions because he found it so difficult to leave Ibrox.

Hutton, who spent six years as a Rangers player having graduated from the club’s academy, eventually left Ibrox for the Premier League giants in 2008.

Since leaving Scotland, Hutton spent three years at White Hart Lane, before having loan spells at Sunderland, Nottingham Forrest, Mallorca and Bolton.

The veteran defender has made eight appearances for Steve Bruce’s Villa this season.
