Alan Hutton has revealed that he was treated as an outcast during his time at Tottenham and has accused Harry Redknapp of making his life a misery.
The full-back quit White Hart Lane for Aston Villa during the summer transfer window and claims the Spurs boss forced him to train with the kids at the club.
The Scotland International, who joined the North London club from Rangers three years ago, says he was upset with the way he was treated.
Hutton, 26, said: "The last straw for me was when I was made to train with the kids. I don't know what that was about. You'll have to ask Mr Redknapp.
"He never said anything to me when I left the club. I can't actually tell you the last time we spoke. It was probably when I heard the words, 'I don't want you to train with us any more, I want you to train with the kids'.
"I just don't think anyone should be treated like that. For me, Spurs was an unhappy place. I knew my time was up long ago. When Redknapp came in, it just went downhill from there.
"I thought about going back to Scotland many times. At Tottenham I didn't have a love for football because I didn't feel wanted."
Having witnessed a very different side to Redknapp, who has been tipped to succeed Fabio Capello as England coach, Hutton added: "I'm not going to say who but there were so many people in that squad who felt unwanted.
"I've never experienced anything like that anywhere I've been."
