Redknapp fine with fourth

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has hailed his side for finishing fourth in the Barclays Premier League, despite being uncertain whether it will be enough to secure Champions League football.

Spurs' 2-0 win over Fulham secured fourth, which would normally guarantee Champions League football. But Chelsea will snatch that spot away from Spurs if they can beat Bayern Munich in the final of this year's competition.

Although he faces an anxious wait over the club's European place, Redknapp hailed the campaign as a success.

"All you can do is do your job," he said. "At the start of the year Champions League football, fourth position, I couldn't have asked for more than that.

"I look at the league and I'm not silly - you think Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, who have spent a fortune.

"If we could have got in there we would have been delighted and that is how I am about it all, we have finished fourth and I couldn't be more pleased."
