Spurs boss Redknapp: Newcastle players have let down Shearer

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp says Alan Shearer has been let down by Newcastle United's players as they face relegation.

In his column for The Sun, Redknapp wrote: "When he went into Newcastle it was like a Messiah coming. He was up for it and the fans were up for it - but the players have let him down.

"The club has changed manager three times this season and while that's not good, not one of them has been able to get the players to respond - Kevin Keegan, Joe Kinnear and Shearer can't all be wrong.

"Shearer has Iain Dowie in there alongside him and he is a good coach but it just hasn't happened for them."
