Redknapp pledges party action

Harry Redknapp has pledged to come down hard on the Tottenham Hotspur players who were involved in a secret Christmas party last week.

The Spurs boss has revealed his shock that 16 members of his squad – reportedly including captain Robbie Keane – travelled to Ireland for a golf day which ended in up in Dublin nightclub.

The veteran former West Ham and Portsmouth manager had initially tried to play down the reports but has since admitted he is unhappy with the incident.

He said:"It was wrong and it will be dealt with. Severely. It will be dealt with.

"It's being dealt with internally and we'll keep it in-house. I will be dealing with it after the weekend.

"We've got a game to concentrate on – we'll sort the game out, then I'll sort them out. Believe you me, it will get sorted out.

"I'm not happy, I'd be lying if I said I was happy. I didn't know anything about the trip at all if I'm perfectly truthful but it's done now and will be dealt with on Monday morning.

"It was the Tuesday and didn't affect the result against Wolves, we worked our socks off, but it doesn't make it right.

"Christmas parties are more trouble than they're worth and it happens at every football club unfortunately. Every club has had problems with it."
