Harry Redknapp calm over Christmas party reports

Harry Redknapp is adamant that a reported secret Christmas party did not adversely affect Tottenham in their shock home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

Redknapp instructed his players not to hold a Christmas party but reports on Friday morning claim his side did indulge in a night out in Ireland prior to the defeat at White Hart Lane.

The Spurs manager has refused to condemn his players though, despite being under the impression that they had visited Ireland for an innocent golfing trip.

"Wednesday was their day off and Robbie (Keane) told me they were going to Ireland to play golf. I had no problem with that," Redknapp told the Sun. "However, it is widely known that I do not approve of Christmas parties and I've always made it clear players should only drink in moderation.

"Whatever happened in Ireland, I do not accept it had any effect on the result against Wolves. The squad trained brilliantly on Thursday and Friday and there were other reasons why we lost that match. On Wednesday this week, when we beat Man City 3-0, you could see the true character and talent in this team."

Redknapp has been very vocal regarding his distaste for alcohol consumption in recent months.
