Redknapp still fuming with Neville for ‘spineless’ Spurs comments

Despite spending three weeks eating rice, beans and kangaroo b*llocks, Harry Redknapp is still absolutely fuming over the comments made by Gary Neville about Spurs.

It has been nearly two months since Gary Neville described some of Spurs former sides as ‘spineless,’ a comment to which the newly crowned King of the Jungle took great offence to at the time.

However, it seems as though despite his time to reflect in the Australian jungle, the 71-year-old is pretty p*ssed off at Neville, saying that the former Manchester United full back’s comments were ‘a load of crap’

“I’ve not had a chat with him. I haven’t spoken to him, nope,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“I just thought what he said was a load of crap. I’m not going to sit back and let him say that.

“How can he say that about the last 30 years? I only know about the team I managed at Tottenham and that was a good team.

“We finished fourth, fourth and fifth and we had good players and played some great football.

“I had Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Ledley King, players like that and I felt we could have pushed on and finished higher the following year.

“So to say they were rubbish teams, to label people as spineless and useless, I thought it was a disgrace to say that.

“Ledley King was getting off the treatment table and you’ve never seen a knee like it. His knee would be like a balloon all week and he’d come out and play on a Saturday. To call him spineless…

“Listen, Manchester United went to Southampton and got beat 6-3 one day when Fergie was manager – it happens in football.

“I thought we played fantastic football during that period. You look through that team I had, it was full of quality players with character. We had Scott Parker who was a great competitor, we had Crouchy, we had Rafa van der Vaart – it was a very, very good team and I was proud to manage them.”
