QPR boss Redknapp taunts Spurs over Assou-Ekotto deal

QPR boss Harry Redknapp says Tottenham gaffed allowing him to take Benoit Assou-Ekotto on-loan.

Redknapp rates the Cameroon left-back inside the top three in the country.

He said: "Benoit's one of the top three left-backs in the country. He's too good for the Championship.

"When I was at Tottenham with him, it was never a case of wondering whether I was going to play him or him or him in that position.

"Benoit played left-back every game and that included Champions League and League Cup finals.

"There's only Ashley Cole and (Leighton) Baines you would put in front of him, and I couldn't think of too many others.

"They (Spurs) let me take him on loan and I'm glad he's here. He's a top player."
