Tottenham Hotspur defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto misses the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a dislocated shoulder.

The Cameroonian picked up the injury during last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Queens Park Rangers.

Manager Harry Redknapp also confirmed that the 28-year-old is suffering with a knee problem.

"He actually dislocated his shoulder against QPR," he told the club's official website. "He's also got a problem with his knee so yes, it looks like he's out for the season."

Fifth-placed Spurs continue their push for Champions League football this weekend when they host struggling Blackburn Rovers at White Hart Lane.
