TOTTENHAM legend Glenn Hoddle – and others – reflect on an emotional day at the Lane; end of an era – dawn of a new one.

They certainly did the Old Lady proud and Zapsportz team leader Glenn was proud to be there to share the occasion, and the memories, with so many friends and former teammates.

His entrance after the 2-1 win against Manchester United raised the biggest cheer, along with that which greeted Ossie Ardiles – and the current team who secured second place.

Here are on Glenn’s thoughts on a perfect day….

‘An amazing day , very emotional. Great to get the three points on the Old Lady’s last day . Great also to meet up with all the old players; some I hadn’t seen for 30 years.

The closing with the Legends coming on and the songs for the fans to close the stadium down was perfect. Well done to the club getting the tone just right , and how poignant the big rainbow coming out right on time as we finished our Lap of honour with the current squad.

Felt very proud and emotional when I walked out on to the pitch to a massive roar , WHL and the fans have meant so much to me in my life and has played such a big part .  Now it’s time for reflection and a season at Wembley. Then to the new stadium !! Exciting times ahead’
