Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was delighted with their Europa League victory over Shamrock Rovers.

Stephen Rice put the Irish part-timers ahead but three goals in five second-half minutes from Roman Pavlyuchenko, Jermain Defoe and Giovani Dos Santos saw Tottenham safely home to a 3-1 victory.

Redknapp said: "When we went one down we were concerned because you think maybe it's going to be one of those nights.

"They played their socks off but at half-time we could have been three goals up, we were hitting the woodwork and their 'keeper was making saves.

"I thought it was a matter of time before we scored but they went and scored with their first real strike at goal and you think it's one of those nights, but we stuck a couple of chances away."
