The pair were joined by a host of former team-mates - many fellow inductees in the Hall of Fame - including the likes of Glenn Hoddle, Gary Mabbutt, Gary Stevens and Tony Galvin at a gala evening at the stadium.
Amongst the many tributes, Glenn Hoddle said: "When Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa came to the club, that was special. I loved playing with them. I was a creative, technical player, so for these lads to come from Argentina as World Cup winners was an exciting time. I felt an understanding with them straight away on the training pitch. The first time we played together was against Antwerp in a pre-season friendly. Ricky and I played about three or four one-twos right down the pitch. I thought, ‘This is wonderful: somebody who is on the same wavelength as me’. We just gelled. Ossie was the same. It was a lovely feeling to play with them."
Garth Crooks added: "My game improved from playing alongside them. I would never have been successful as a player if I hadn’t joined Tottenham Hotspur because the team at the time was just blessed with outstanding players and Ossie and Ricky were two of the best of them. They were consummate professionals."
Legendary duo Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa were inducted into Tottenham Hotspur Hall of Fame on a special night at the Lane on Thursday.
