Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says the Europa League has been good for his young players.

Redknapp will miss tonight's match at Rubin Kazan after a heart op.

But he said: "We've played some of the younger kids in Europe and they've come in and done well - people like young Tom Carroll, Andros Townsend, Jake Livermore and Harry Kane.

"They've all had a go at it and they've all acquitted themselves well.

"We'll keep doing the same thing. I'll play those lads and one or two who are coming back to fitness, so they'll come out and play for us in Russia on Thursday."
