Hutton delighted with way he's settled at Tottenham

Tottenham fullback Alan Hutton is delighted with the way he has settled since his arrival from Rangers last month.

Ahead of today's Carling Cup final against Chelsea, Hutton told the Sunday Mail: "It has been a brilliant experience so far. I didn't know what to expect down here and it was like my first day at school all over again.

"But all the players have been great. It's a family-orientated club and on the pitch we like to play attacking football which suits me. I've managed to find a house so that will help me settle quickly.

"Robbie, in particular, has really helped. If there's anything I need to know I can speak to him. He's an approachable guy and that has helped me bed in. Robbie is a big Celtic fan though and has already tried to give me stick.

"Before the Barcelona game on Wednesday he was trying to wind me up saying: 'Celtic are going through, no problem'.

"The Premiership is a really high standard and easily one of the best leagues in the world. It doesn't matter whether you're playing a top team or one lower down - it's still good quality you're up against.

"I'm only going to improve by competing against that kind of opposition every week.

"That's the reason for leaving Rangers and coming here - to make myself a better player."
