Former Glasgow Rangers and Scotland striker Ally McCoist has praised Tottenham Hotspur after they reversed their decision to furlough non-playing staff under a government scheme and acknowledged pressure from supporters forced them to change their mind.

The North London club caused outrage two weeks ago when they announced in a statement of their plans to seek funding from the government’s coronavirus job retention scheme and furlough 550 of their non-playing staff.

Instead, only board members will now take salary reductions with McCoist who was appearing on talkSPORT’s breakfast show believing that the club will still get criticism but people must now move on from the mistake.

Spurs have followed in the footsteps of Liverpool who previously announced their decision not to push ahead with their application for the furlough scheme (BBC).
