Harry Redknapp has hit back at Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville, following his comments on how Spurs have been “spineless and soft” for the last 30 years.
Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on Talksport, Harry Redknapp expressed how he was “upset and disappointed” with Neville comments.
Neville appeared alongside ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher on Monday Night Football when he said this;
“Tottenham for thirty years of our lives were spineless and soft, flakey and rubbish.”
The former Manchester United captain also added that;
“You could be two nil down against them and think you could win five-two, that’s just the way they were. You knew basically that one little sort of a bump in the game and they would just fall over it. They were pathetic.”
Redknapp managed Tottenham for four seasons and led them into the Champions League as well as a League Cup final. He said this on Talksport when asked his thoughts on Neville’s comments;
“Gary’s comments, I thought were an absolute disgrace. I can only speak about the three and a half years I had there managing the club.
“You know you got players in that team it’s a disgrace to label people like Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Ledley King, Rafa Van Der Vaart, William Gallas. It’s a disgrace to talk about players saying they are spineless.”
Harry Redknapp also added that;
“He should do his homework when he makes comments like that, he was totally out of order.
“He managed Valencia and when he managed the team they were the worst Valencia team probably not just in the last thirty years but in their history.”
Gary Neville responded to Redknapp’s comments with a simple emoji.

There is certainly no love lost between the pair, and it will be interesting to see whether or not this minor feud will continue.
