Spurs gave Harry a fright: Jordan

Tottenham assistant manager Joe Jordan admits his team put recuperating boss Harry Redknapp through an unnecessarily stressful finale to his side's 3-1 win at Fulham.


Redknapp missed Sunday's Premier League clash as he recovers from heart surgery which is expected to keep him away from football for up to five weeks. But the 64-year-old was watching the match on television at home.

Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon gave Spurs the lead, but Younes Kaboul's own goal set up a grandstand finish.

Only a series of fine saves from Brad Friedel and a rejected penalty claim kept Spurs in front before Jermain Defoe got the winning goal in stoppage time.

"Never mind the goalmouth scramble, that last half hour will have been a good test for Harry," said Jordan.
