Harry Redknapp is delighted for Tim Sherwood over his appointment as Tottenham manager.

Redknapp took Spurs into the Champions League in 2010 and the QPR manager thinks Sherwood can achieve the same feat this year.

Redknapp even thinks that Tottenham can catch second-place Arsenal, who have spent much of the season at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

"I thought Tottenham were absolute certainties to finish above Arsenal at the start of the season," Redknapp told talkSPORT.

"Then Arsenal lost their first game of the season, but they have done fantastic since then. But they are only six points above Tottenham.

"That's nothing. That can be wiped out in a week, so Tottenham are still bang in there.

"They have a good squad. I think Tim will get the best out of them. I wouldn't write Tottenham off for a top-four position, they have got as good a chance as the seven teams that will be scrapping it out until the end of the season."
