Sacked Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp insists there's little more he could do for the club.
While careful not to criticise the club for their decision, Redknapp - who took over at White Hart Lane with Spurs bottom of the league - remains adamant his record stands up to the strictest scrutiny.
He told the Daily Mail: "I know people talk about what Martin Jol did at Tottenham, getting them to fifth - but he didn't have Manchester City to contend with. We've had to take on all the same teams from his era, plus a new one in City and finished fourth twice in three seasons.
"Going into this season we were up against the two Manchester clubs, Chelsea, who never finish outside the top four, Arsenal, who always qualify for the Champions League, plus Liverpool who have Luis Suarez and spent a lot of money in the summer.
"This season was always going to be hard - so when I look back I can't think of a whole lot of things I would have done differently."
