Shearer: Spurs ace Kane has everything to beat my goals record

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has no doubts about the quality of Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Shearer wrote for The Sun: "I have always reserved judgement on whether my Premier League goalscoring record will ever be beaten.

"There have been some brilliant goalscorers who have followed me, not least Wayne Rooney who is second in the all-time list now with 200 goals.

"Still 61 to go though and I fear time will catch up with him before he is able to break the record.

"Yet in Harry Kane I can now definitely see a player who can top the total I amassed with Blackburn and Newcastle.

"I got another 23 with Southampton I might add, but that was before the Premier League came into being.

"At 24 years old the Tottenham man has 82 goals and has reached that quicker than anyone bar myself."
