Tottenham boss Redknapp agrees with two penalties in CL win

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp agrees with two of the penalties awarded to his side in their 4-1 Champions League win over FC Twente on Wednesday night.

Spurs scored from the spot twice out of three penalties given and Redknapp was all for the first two whilst admitting the third was a bit 'soft'.

"It was exciting stuff. The first two penalties were blatant and I don't know how you couldn't give them," said Redknapp.

"(Peter ) Crouch was pulled down, wrestled to the floor. For the second one (Gareth) Bale beat the fella like he did all night and was pulled down. It was a blatant penalty.

"On the third the ball travelled a long way and it was a soft penalty but you see them given.

"There was nothing wrong with (Rafael) van der Vaart's goal and it was a fantastic finish from Bale at the end."
