Redknapp told Sky Sports: "It looked like a penalty, but the boy who scored the penalty shouldn't have been on the pitch. He kicked Scott Parker in the head.

"He does that quite often. It's not right. He's caught him and then he's back-heeled him again in the face and cut his head.





"You can't get away with things like that on the football pitch, the referee should be seeing that.

"He's kicked him in the head, it's there for everybody to see. I'm sure you've got it on the TV. No-one can make excuses that he didn't do it, because anyone can see he did do it."



After an uneventful first half, City took control with goals from Samir Nasri and Joleon Lescott before Spurs hit back to level through Jermain Defoe and a Gareth Bale beauty, with all four strikes coming in a hectic 10-minute spell.

Defoe then came within inches of winning it for the visitors before the late penalty drama, but despite now sitting eight points behind the leaders, Redknapp insists the defeat will not demoralise his side.

He added: "It just proves to me that we're as good as anybody. They weren't better than us today.

"We were so close and looked the more likely team to win. I'm delighted with the players. It just shows how far we have come and where we can go from here. We've got a good team.

"We've been beaten 3-2 here knowing we shouldn't have been beaten. It should be very easy to pick them up. They've proved to everyone today that they're good enough to play against Man City."
