Tottenham skipper Ledley King is happy seeing former teammate Rohan Ricketts in action again at Shamrock Rovers.

After departing N17 for Wolves in 2005, the midfielder plied his trade at QPR, Barnsley, Toronto, Diosgyori VTK in Hungary, FC Dacia Chisinau in Moldova and SV Wilhelmshaven in Germany before joining Rovers in the summer.

"Rohan was such a bubbly character and got on with everyone," King told the Spurs website.

"He loved his football, that's for sure. He was passionate about playing the game and wanted to express himself whenever he got the chance.

"He had ability. He could play anywhere across the midfield and did well in the time he was here and in the games he played.

"He had to move on in the end and he's found it difficult to settle, but he's at Shamrock Rovers now and hopefully he'll get on with playing football again."
