Redknapp slams Flamini tackle
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has hit out at the two-footed tackle by Mathieu Flamini on Vedran Corluka and also had his say on the angry scenes at the full-time whistle that surrounded Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso's head-butt on Spurs coach Joe Jordan.
Flamini went in hard on Corluka, who had to come off and was seen later on crutches, but only received a yellow card for his tackle; a decision Redknapp was not happy with.
''That is a red card all day. How has he not got a red card for that?'' he said after the game. ''It's an absolute disgrace, they [UEFA] should look at that, surely, and do something about it. It's a dangerous, dangerous tackle.
''He was two or three feet off the floor with two feet. It was a leg-breaking tackle. ''He [Corluka] will have an x-ray tomorrow but I don't think he has broken it but he could have done easily.''
Flamini later revealed he had been to see the defender to say sorry. He said: "I went to the Tottenham locker room to check on Corluka's condition and to apologise.
"It's a shame about the defeat, as we played a good second half. Now we'll have to go to London and win the game. We can win on our travels and created scoring opportunities tonight. In the first half we were too sluggish when pressing, but after the break we deserved a victory."
Redknapp also joked about Gattuso's spat with Jordan, saying: ''There would be only one winner there - Joe! I'd have my money on Joe. Of all the people to pick on, don't pick on Joe.''
Meanwhile, Tottenham match-winner Peter Crouch hailed a ''fantastic achievement'' after his side snatched a famous win.
''It was a great game of football, I thought we deserved the win in the end. I thought we limited them to not many chances and I think we were the better side. It's a fantastic achievement,'' Crouch said. ''I just had to keep up with Azza (Lennon) at the end!''
Lennon added: ''When I beat the first defender and saw Crouchy was free I was always going to put it across to him.''
