Harry Redknapp escapes misconduct charge

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will not face any disciplinary action over his gesture towards Shamrock Rovers fans during Thursday night's Europa League match in Dublin, UEFA have confirmed.

Redknapp had been barracked almost constantly throughout the match by a section of the home fans and seemed to react angrily midway through the second half with an apparent clenched-fist gesture towards the Rovers supporters.

UEFA said they were waiting to see if the incident was mentioned in reports by the referee and UEFA delegate before deciding whether to charge Redknapp with improper conduct.

But a UEFA spokesperson said yesterday: "Nothing was mentioned in the official reports about this and UEFA has not opened any disciplinary proceedings at this match."
