Ex Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson wears Spurs tie on television

The former England international was commentating on the Whites' League Cup match against Doncaster.

Former Tottenham and Leeds United goalkeeper made a little bit of fashion faux pas as he observed the White's League Cup tie at Doncaster Rovers, a tight match that could only be decided on penalties, with the Vikings victorious 4-2 after the match finished 1-1 at 120 minutes.

Though Robinson should have ideally been impartial during coverage of the match, it would be understood if he was to lean a little towards the Whites on the night considering he came through the Leeds academy as a youngster, not to mention that it was a derby cup match that would have surely urged any Yorkshireman to take sides.

So it was some surprise to see the ex England stopper sporting a dark blue tie with the Spurs logo of a cockerel standing on a football visible to the television cameras.

But whether he was holding true to a Tottenham allegiance that superseded that which he would have gained coming through the Elland Road youth setup, or whether he forgot that there was a tiny Spurs cockerel at the tip of the tie, Robinson was unintentionally a minor discussion point on the keen-sighted among those on social media.

We'll have to see if anyone has the courage to ask the 35-year-old, recently released by Blackburn, whether it was a demonstration of loyalty or just a mishap. Or maybe he's looking to take the place of Brad Friedel as third-choice veteran at White Hart Lane.
