Portsmouth chief Storrie urges fans to go easy on Tottenham's Redknapp

Portsmouth chief Peter Storrie has urged fans not to go over the top in Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp's return to Fratton Park.

Storrie has asked fans to retain a sense of perspective and remember what he did for the Blues.

He said: "Obviously we all know what reaction he will probably get. I just hope the fans will be fair and realise the success that Harry brought to the club, which was absolutely tremendous.

"I know people say "oh you're biased because he's your friend" but he has brought great success to this football club: the highest league position for 50 years, seven years in the Premier League, winning the FA Cup - you can't have any more than that.

"Harry's a top-quality manager and I think there will be a lot of people here who will appreciate that. Yes, obviously he will get some sort of stick and he knows that but I think you have to remember the job he's done for the club. He has always openly said that if what he perceived to be a big job came along he would like that opportunity - and he's doing that very successfully.

"I just hope there's a balance in the fans' reaction at the game."
