Tottenham boss Ramos offers little comfort to axed Robinson

Paul Robinson's future at Tottenham is in doubt after he was dropped for last night's 1-1 Carling Cup semifinal result at Arsenal.

England goalkeeper Robinson has now been dropped by both club and country ahead of their most important games of the season to date and Spurs manager Juande Ramos refused to offer him any support after the match.

Ramos said: "He is no different to Stalteri or Boateng or the others on the bench. Only 11 can play.

"We have 25 players in the squad and those who play must make the most of their chance on the pitch. He is a good goalkeeper, which he has demonstrated in his career so far."

Robinson lost his England place to Scott Carson for the decisive Euro 2004 qualifier against Croatia in November and Fabio Capello was in the crowd for last night's game at the Emirates Stadium to witness the loss of the keeper's Spurs place to Radek Cerny.

Asked if Robinson would be recalled on Saturday, Ramos said: "All players will be considered. We will have to look at what we have available."
