Roberts furious over Tottenham snub: They invited Howells!

Former Tottenham captain Graham Roberts has been delivered an amazing snub by the London giants.

Roberts has been handed a major snub after not being invited by the club to join in the celebrations of their 125th anniversary last night.

Spurs paraded 50 legendary players to mark the special occasion before their amazing 4-4 draw with Aston Villa, but Roberts has not been chosen.

The 48-year-old is believed to have upset the club with his constant criticism and was warned to stop commenting on the board's handling of the Martin Jol affair, says the Daily Mail.

Roberts, who made 357 appearances for Spurs, was captain when they beat Anderlecht to win the UEFA Cup in 1984.

He said: "I am deeply hurt and can't believe it. All I have done is speak out in support of the manager. I am entitled to have an opinion and can't believe David Howells will be part of the legends parade and I won't be."
