Gullit was highly critical of Rose and his Tottenham teammates Dele Alli and Victor Wanyama after the first leg against Ajax.

Tottenham defender Danny Rose has told Ruud Gullit to "eat his words" after his side pulled off a Champions League miracle at Ajax.

The former Holland international, working as a pundit, was highly critical of Spurs after last week's first-leg defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

He said: "Dele Alli, oh my god, technically wise so bad. (Victor) Wanyama, my god, technically wise, (Danny) Rose too.

"Like I said I see them every week and how is it possible to make so many mistakes? I know you're under pressure but you need to know what to do and they didn't."

He will have been ready to go in again at half-time of the second leg as Spurs fell to a 3-0 aggregate deficit, with Ajax leading 2-0 on the night.

But Lucas Moura's stunning second-half hat-trick, completed in the dying seconds, sent his side through to the Champions League final on away goals, with Liverpool waiting in the Madrid tie on June 1.

Rose hit back at Gullit after the magical night in Amsterdam and revelled in being able to "shut him up".

The England left-back said: "You know, seeing people's comments like Ruud Gullit after the first game and how rude he was, it's nice that we fought back tonight and shut him up.

"He was very critical of individual players and saying how bad we were technically and he's bang out of order for that, so that was fuel to the fire.

"I hope he eats his words after tonight."
