Danny Rose’s performances for Tottenham Hotspur this season have impressed Graeme Souness.

Former Rangers and Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness has revealed in The Sunday Times that he enjoys watching Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose.

The former Scotland international has named the England international left-back in his Premier League Team of the Season and has analysed his game.

Souness has also predicted Rose, who is 25 years of age and can play as a winger as well as a defender, to get better and better.

“I really like Rose,” the former Newcastle United manager wrote in The Sunday Times. “He is lightning-quick, he is aggressive and he is very good on the ball. He pings his passes and does everything at a high tempo.

“If you were playing against him, because he’s not tall, you’d look to catch him out at the far post against a big striker. But that doesn’t happen to him often. At 25 he should keep getting better and better.”

Rose, who has been on the books of Tottenham since 2007, has been an important player for the North London outfit this season.

The former Leeds United prospect has scored one goal and created 20 chances in 20 Premier League appearances so far this campaign.

The England international defender has a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 27%, and has won 18 headers, 23 dribbles and 47 tackles.

Tottenham are second in the Premier League table at the moment with 65 points from 33 matches, seven points behind leaders Leicester City.
