Tottenham boss Redknapp understands Fergie's ref rant

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has empathised with Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson for losing his cool with referee Alan Wiley, admitting he has also said things he later regretted in the heat of the moment.

"It's difficult after a game, we are all so heated and uptight about everything," said the Spurs boss. "At times, after a game, when you've put everything into it and you've had a bad decision go against you, it's easy to lose your head.

"But really the best way is to go away and think about it all and maybe in the cold light of day have a chat with the referee at a later date.

"Certainly you could give it 45 or 60 minutes after a game rather than rushing in and making rash statements."
