Harry redknapp happy with Europa League point

Despite sending out a reserve team to Greece, Tottenham Hotpsur performed pretty well in their Europa League clash with PAOK Salonika, dealing with the hostile atmosphere and escaping with a goalless draw.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp said that his side, whose average was 23, could take a lot of credit for the way they handled the occasion, even though they were only saved by a miraculous penalty save from Carlo Cudicini, saying that they passed the ball well and weren't overawed by the tricky cricumstances in which they found themselves.

'I was pleased with performance, particularly in the first half. We kept the ball well,' Redknapp added. 'That was an intimidating atmosphere out there tonight. It was fantastic. You don't get that in many places in the world. The fans were incredible and they get behind their team.

'The young players have never seen that before and it must have been a difficult experience for them, but I thought they coped very well.'
