Redknapp escapes UEFA action after Shamrock gesture

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has escaped UEFA action following an alleged obscene gesture to Shamrock Rovers fans in Thursday’s Europa League tie, The Independent reports.

During the match in Dublin, Redknapp was constantly barracked by a section of Shamrock fans. Midway through the second half, the Spurs manager allegedly clenched a fist towards those supporters. UEFA said that they have received nothing in the official reports from the referee and a UEFA delegate, so no further action will take place. No TV cameras picked up on the incident.

A statement by UEFA said: ‘We can inform you that nothing was mentioned in the official reports about this and UEFA has not opened any disciplinary proceedings at this match.’

Redknapp reiterated yesterday that he had done nothing wrong in the Tallaght Stadium, where Spurs were knocked out of the Europa League despite winning 4-0. The Spurs boss said: ‘I can’t repeat what they were saying. I am not allowed to repeat what they were saying to me. I didn’t do anything to them, no’.
