Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp does not blame Peter Crouch for their thumping at Real Madrid.

Crouch received his marching orders early in that game, but Redknapp refuses to blame the England international and instead thanked him for his seven goals en route to the quarter-finals.

"He's been low has Peter, he's been really disappointed in himself, he feels like he's let everybody down," said the Tottenham boss.

"But without Crouchy we wouldn't even have been in that game because his goals have taken us to the quarter-finals of the Champions League this year."
