Alan Hutton wore a broad smile after being told that he's now a record-breaker at Spurs - and it's a record unlikely to be beaten!

The January capture from Glasgow Rangers played his part in a magnificent defensive display as we came from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1 in Sunday's Carling Cup Final at Wembley.

In doing so, he picked up a winner's medal just three games into his Spurs career and therefore beat the previous record held by Jimmy Neighbour who had made only nine starts plus six substitute appearances prior to his appearance in the successful 1971 final in the same competition.

COMING TODAY - Interviews on Spurs TV Online with Hutton, Jermaine Jenas and Robbie Keane...

"It's been unbelievable, like a whirlwind the last few weeks, coming down to Spurs and then playing a final at Wembley in my third game," reflected the full-back at Spurs Lodge on Thursday. "To win it as well, fantastic. They've been great times so far.

"I think it will be tough to beat three games - I think that might stand for a while!" he added before confirming that suggestion that there was no better way to integrate into a squad than through a cup final.

"It's been easy for me so far. I thought it might take a while to be right in tight with the team but with the final I've got to know the lads that much better. They are a great bunch and they've helped me settle really quickly."

We'll have Alan's thoughts on his former Scottish manager Alex McLeish - now boss at Birmingham City - later today.
