Just shake on it, insists Tim Sherwood

Tim Sherwood has ordered Tottenham's players to shake hands with Charlie Adam amid reports some may blank the Stoke midfielder after he injured Paulinho earlier in the campaign.

The Brazil international was forced off with what turned out to be ankle ligament damage after being clattered by Adam in December's 3-0 win over the Potters.

The challenge was the latest in a number of incidents involving Spurs players, with the Scotland midfielder previously clashing with Gareth Bale on two occasions and once with Scott Parker.

Head coach Sherwood said: "The players will do their duty and shake hands along that line to show respect to their opposition."
