The former Spurs boss told The Sun last December: "Barney's a bit of a boy, so Barney's ate the Christmas cake.

"So we take him to the vet, and they have to pump its stomach, because currants, that would kill them, they would die.

"It would have killed him. So poor Lulu, who hasn't eaten any, they pumped her stomach just in case she'd ate some, and no one knew, and she hasn't even done nothing wrong really, but she had to suffer as well.

"A dog is not only for Christmas. A dog is for life.

"Barney was good after that. No more Christmas cake for Barney. Oh, they would kill him, those raisins."
