There have been reports of anti-semitic abuse towards Spurs at White Hart Lane from this afternoon’s clash but Allardyce admits he is none the wiser when it comes to hearing these sorts of things.
"I didn't hear it," he said. "I don't hear what the fans say or do when I'm concentrating as a manager on a game of football.
"They shouldn't be doing things like that, it is the least of my worries at the minute isn't it. What do you want me to say? If I didn't hear it I can't condemn it can I?
"I will wait and look at it myself and make a comment once I have listened to what they have said.
"I don't want to be a political animal, I'm here to talk about football and not what fans are saying and singing."
