A lap of honour by the current crop of players, including Kane junior in the hands of his father Harry.

An actual rainbow over White Hart Lane as the ceremony comes to an end.

Nice.

No joke...

The guy from the Go Compare adverts has taken the stage to sing the final song.

"Glory glory Tottenham Hotspur..."

An orchestral version of "Oh when the Spurs, go marching in" is being sung.

They've all got raincoats on as it is currently chucking it down at White Hart Lane.

All that effort to get dressed...

We are upto R with Paul Robinson entering the pitch.

Nearly there folks.

It's like the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

Not sure if this stadium goodbye is better or West Ham's last season. To be honest, that was pretty cringe.

Robbie Keane is here and so is Spurs royalty in Ledley King.

Erm...

I am awaiting the selections for Garth's Team of the Week but he has just walked out onto the pitch at White Hart Lane.

I may be waiting a while for him to email me his copy.

It is a guard of honour for Tottenham legends:

Clive Allen, Paul Allen, Les Allen, Darren Anderton, Steve Archibald.

Right, I see where this is going so I can't bothered writing all the player names out.

I'll just give you the good ones.

The singers and orchestra are now on the pitch at White Hart Lane for the closing ceremony.

A few have left the ground but the majority have remained to enjoy the occasion.

'Just another game'

FT: Tottenham 2-1 Man Utd

Manchester United

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney:

"To be honest it's another game against Tottenham. It was special for their players and fans but for us it was another game at White Hart Lane.

"We wanted to win the game, we went out and tried to win the game. Tottenham played well but we could have done better.

"White Hart Lane always was one of my favourite grounds to play at. I have good memories here."

'It wasn't enough'

FT: Tottenham 2-1 Man Utd

Manchester United

Manchester United's Daley Blind: "It wasn't enough, they were more dominant and scored from set plays and we have to be sharp on that.

"We have to move on to next game. We need to finish the season as strong as possible. We know the [Europa League] final is a big match and I don't want to talk about that yet. We know what is at stake and we will be prepared."

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: "It was a perfect performance and I am happy for the victory for our fans. It was a fantastic victory which the fans deserved.

"We had the control of the game and played better. It was another great performance at White Hart Lane and now we have to focus on the last two games.

"We are playing against Manchester United and they have very good players. They have been prepared to win the league and win big things. It is great to achieve second position and it is fantastic for us. We have been unbeaten at home all season so there are a lot of things to be happy about.

"It is true that we will play in the new stadium and we will take the last step (to win so,ethign). We need to feel that Wembley is our home and we need to find a balance between White Hart Lane and there. Next season we will feel it is our home.

"We will be proud of our achievements and we fought for the Premier League."

'The league matches are the ones we don’t want to play'

FT: Tottenham 2-1 Man Utd

Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho told Sky Sports: "After 2-0 we had to bring a bit more quality to the team, we brought more balance. We put players back in the right positions. I’m happy, I’m fine with what we had in terms of individual performances. The two goals conceded were bad.

"When people say we gambled by going to Europa League, we didn’t gamble. You can’t play two big competitions with 15 players. It was compulsory. The ones that needed to play 90 mins got toplay, we got no injuries. At the moment, the Premier League matches are the ones we don’t want to play.

"I don't want to think about next season - I want to think about the final we have to play in".  

'We had to play for the fans'

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs midfielder Dele AlIi speaking to Sky Sports: "It was unbelievable. The fans deserved it and we had to play for them. It's been a great season and hopefully we can build on it. 

"We want to win every game. We were comfortabke at 2-0 but perhaps we made it harder than it needed to be.

On moving to Wembley: "We hear about it not being good for us but that was down to Champions League performances. We've got to make sure we feel comfortable there next season and make it as much of a fortress as White Hart Lane."

Tottenham Hotspur

Striker Harry Kane on scoring Tottenham's match-winning goal in the last game at White Hart Lane: "What a way to finish. We wanted a win so badly in our last game here. I said before I'd love to score the winning goal and for it to happen is brilliant. To see it go in was special. 

"When you look at our points tally compared to last season, obviously we're disappointed losing out on the title but we are growing. We so badly wanted to win this game."
