Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has escaped disciplinary action over his gesture to Shamrock Rovers fans in the Europa League on Thursday.

The veteran manager was heckled all match in Dublin and gave a clenched-fist celebration towards the home fans in the second half of the 4-0 win.

UEFA said they were waiting to see if the incident was mentioned in the reports from either the referee or the UEFA delegate, but have now confirmed the Englishman will not face charges.

Speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Sunderland this weekend, Redknapp said: “I can’t repeat what they (Shamrock fans) were saying. I am not allowed to repeat what they were saying to me. I didn’t do anything to them, no.”

Despite winning the match, White Hart Lane will see no more European football this season as results did not go their way elsewhere in Group A.

The north London club needed PAOK Salonika to beat Rubin Kazan but the match ended 1-1.
