Former Pompey midfielder Pedro Mendes reckons that Spurs and Pompey are pretty similar-sized clubs, but both are dwarfed by his present side Rangers.

The 30-year-old Portuguese, who left Pompey for Glasgow last summer, gave an interview to where he reflected on the differences between his two English clubs and the Scottish Champions. Article continues here...

When asked whether, Rangers were a bigger club than Pompey or Spurs he said: "It is, without doubt. It is a historic club has fans everywhere and a stadium that holds 50,000 people and is always full.

"Portsmouth is a nice club in southern England and Tottenham is a little bigger and has much history, but Rangers are the best."

Mendes also revealed he had received some gifts from Celtic fans, even though he scored a notably goal against Rangers big rivals.

"Many of the Celtic supporters to tell me that I should play for them. It is common to receive the congratulations of opposition supporters. I have already received bottles of whisky with the Celtic badge on! I’ve never had any problems."
