Tottenham interim boss Ryan Mason believes Harry Kane is still underappreciated by some.

Kane scored his 26th league goal of the season as Spurs beat Crystal Palace, heading home for the 10th time for another Premier League record to add to many others under his belt.

The striker has now scored 209 league goals, moving clear of Wayne Rooney into second on the all-time list.

Mason said: "Naturally we'll all talk about Harry's goals and Harry when he plays games of football he will continue to score goals. We know that.

"But also that elite mindset, that example that he sets every day in and around the place, it's great to be around. Because when you have people like that they inspire you to be better and we appreciate Harry, we value him so much at this football club."

Kane is now 51 behind all-time Premier League leader Alan Shearer, who netted 260 in the top flight.

Mason continued: "Harry is certainly one player that is focused every game to be the best version of himself every time he is out on that football pitch, whether it's the training ground or on matchday, so hopefully Harry continues to play and I'm sure he'll continue to score goals.

“I don't really like speaking too much about the future because from personal experience I know that you can't really plan too much far ahead in football terms and in life, and you've got to be in the moment."
