The former defender, who won 16 caps for England, enjoyed a 16-year spell at Tottenham from 1982 until 1998 and he was club captain for 11 years from 1987.
The former Bristol Rovers player won the 1984 UEFA Cup and the 1991 FA Cup as a Tottenham player.
Mabbutt still works as an ambassador and matchday host for Tottenham and he most recently appeared in public as one of 48 club legends to be paraded following the last-ever game at White Hart Lane — a 2-1 win against Manchester United on May 14.
