No action taken against Redknapp

Redknapp had threatened to stop doing post-match interviews if he had been sanctioned

Harry Redknapp has escaped punishment for describing Manchester United winger Nani's goal on Saturday as "a farce".

The Football Association will take no formal action against the Tottenham boss for his criticism of referee Mark Clattenburg after Spurs' 2-0 defeat.

Redknapp, who has received a warning, had threatened to stop doing post-match interviews if had been sanctioned.

"Don't expect me to come out on the TV any more and speak to the press after the game, because I won't," he said.

With Manchester United leading 1-0, and six minutes of the match remaining, Nani slotted past Heurelho Gomes with the Spurs keeper looking on, believing he had lined up a free-kick after the winger's handball.

However, referee Mark Clattenburg allowed the goal as he had not awarded Spurs a free-kick.

After the game Redknapp said Clattenburg had had a "nightmare" with Nani's goal and on Monday the Spurs boss repeated his accusation that the referee and his officials colluded to get their story straight.

"When they get in their room, and I've said it before, that they would always make sure that they sing from the same hymn sheet," said the 63-year-old Redknapp.

"Mr Clattenburg, in private, has said to somebody that I know, for a fact, that he made a mess, really. When the reports go in, all the assistants back up Mark Clattenburg.

"They all get together and make a decision - it's a fact. If it's a fact which people don't like, what can I do about that? It's a fact."
