His first senior goal, in November 2005, came against his first club Derby during a loan spell with Wolves - and he exploded with joy.
The 26-year-old said: "I will try not to celebrate but when I went back to Pride Park I tried not to and it didn't happen.
"With it being my first career goal, things got the better of me. Hopefully, I can score at Spurs but, out of respect, I won't be over the top with the celebration."
