Redknapp Jumps To Keane's Defence

Redknapp Jumps To Keane's Defence

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has decided to have a go at Birmingham over the club`s claim that the move for Robbie Keane failed because of the player`s wage demands.

Things looked to be going good, a £6 million offer had been accepted by Tottenham and all the Keane and Blues had to do was sort out personal terms.

But that move broke down with Birmingham saying that they could not afford the player on the sort of money that he wanted.

Keane hit back by saying that the whole thing was orchestrated as a publicity stunt by the club and they never had any intension of signing him.

Now Redknapp, who wasn`t there at the time, has come out in defence of his player.

He said: 'There was never a deal with Birmingham.

'He never asked Birmingham for money. He never got around to discussing a deal with them so when they said they couldn't meet his wage demands that was totally unfair on Robbie because he never made any demands. He never even spoke to them.

'I don't see how the deal could've fallen down on wage demands when he didn't make any. That's a strange one.'
