Former Tottenham boss George Graham believes Tim Sherwood deserves to be considered for the manager's job.

Sherwood guided Spurs to victory at Southampton yesterday.

Graham told Absolute Radio: "Well, he has not got the job has he? He's the Caretaker manager just now; it is a difficult job but I think Tim has been working with the youth setup, so he knows how the club is run. I don't know if he has got his coaching badges.

"Yeah. Well, that's the route I went. The route I went, I went to work with Terry Venables at Crystal Palace for three years. It was a fantastic experience; and then he went to QPR. I joined him there as well and worked with him for another almost three years."
