Then: Edinburgh’s clumsy manhandling of the ball was enough for the referee to award Manchester United a second half penalty. The experienced full-back had been at the club since making a £150,000 move in the 1990-1991 season. By 1997, Edinburgh had made almost 200 appearances for the club and, despite being unpopular with the majority of the Spurs faithful, had battled away any competition for his position down the years.

Now: Edinburgh is currently the manager of Gillingham in League One. In terms of his Spurs career, Edinburgh left the club after 10 years service in the year 2000. Since retiring from the professional game in 2003, Edinburgh has worked his way through the English lower leagues, managing the likes of Fisher Athletic, Grays Athletic, Rushden & Diamonds and Newport County. As a manager, Edinburgh’s performance at Newport saw him named as the 2013 Conference North Manager of the Year.
