The former Brighton and Hove Albion defender has been congratulated for his services to football and diversity in sport.
English right-back Chris Ramsey has been awarded the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
He is now coaching Queens Park Rangers but has enjoyed a long and successful sports career.
“I am quite in shock if I’m being honest,” he was quoted by the Brighton’s official website after receiving the MBE.
“I have been in football for 41 years and have managed to touch every part of the game – grassroots, youth, women’s football, disability football, as well as at all first team levels.”
“That means a lot to me,” he said.
“The diversity part is something that is close to my heart.”
He explained: “I think it’s very important that we realize there are still areas of diversity that need to be looked at in the game.”
“I thank all the clubs that I have worked for, especially QPR and also my time at Tottenham, which is where I was able to really cement my reputation.”
