Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was delighted with goal scorer Roman Pavlyuchenko after victory over Europa League opponents Rubin Kazan.

Redknapp said on Wednesday that he would reluctantly agree to listen to offers for Pavlyuchenko in January, but he may now be having second thoughts about the former Spartak Moscow man after this strike.

"He is a great striker of the ball. He really can hit a ball," Redknapp said.

"When he lined it up I had a feeling he was going to score because he is a very clean striker of the football.

"He's got two great feet. Technically he's a top, top player - there was never any doubt about that. It was good to see him score."
