Tottenham players party behind Redknapp's back

Tottenham players are reportedly organised a Christmas party against manager Harry Redknapp's wishes.

The Sun says Spurs senior players have heaped shame on the club by organising a secret Christmas party in Dublin behind the back of Redknapp.

SIXTEEN first-team stars coughed up £2,000 each to party organiser Robbie Keane for the wild night out after Redknapp had allowed them to go on what he believed was a golf trip.

But the shamed players abused that privilege, with six of them even hiring a private jet to fly there and back.

They arrived in Dublin last Tuesday and spent the night partying in a bar and a nightclub before flying back the following day.

Redknapp, however, said last night the players had told him they were going to Dublin for a golf trip.

He said: "Wednesday was their day off and Robbie told me they were going to Ireland to play golf. I had no problem with that.

"However, it is widely known that I do not approve of Christmas parties and I've always made it clear players should only drink in moderation.

"Whatever happened in Ireland, I do not accept it had any effect on the result against Wolves.

"The squad trained brilliantly on Thursday and Friday and there were other reasons why we lost that match.

"On Wednesday this week, when we beat Man City 3-0, you could see the true character and talent in this team."
