Harry Redknapp's highs and lows during Tottenham reign

 

Harry Redknapp's reign at Tottenham came to an end overnight.

Here, we take a look back at the highs and lows of Redknapp's time at White Hart Lane following his appointment in October 2008...

HIGHS:

March 1, 2009 - Guides Spurs to Carling Cup final in his first season in charge but his side lose to Manchester United on a penalty shoot-out.

November 22, 2009 - Tottenham thrash Wigan 9-1 with Jermain Defoe scoring five times.

May 5, 2010 - Secures top-four Premier League finish and place in Champions League qualifying round with 1-0 win at Manchester City. Peter Crouch scores the only goal at the Etihad Stadium.

November 2, 2010 - Spurs stun Inter Milan 3-1 at White Hart Lane in the outstanding performance of a Champions League campaign that takes them all the way to the quarter-finals.

November 20, 2010 - Spurs come from two goals down to beat north London rivals Arsenal 3-2 at the Emirates. Gareth Bale and Rafael van der Vaart cancel out efforts from Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh before Younes Kaboul nods in a late winner.

LOWS:

April 11, 2010 - Spurs are beaten 2-0 in FA Cup semi-final by Redknapp's previous club Portsmouth at Wembley.

April 5, 2011 - A fine Champions League run ends in emphatic fashion as Spurs lose 5-0 on aggregate to Real Madrid. The tie was effectively over after the first leg, which ends 4-0 to the Spanish club.

May, 2011 - Spurs finish fifth in the Premier League, missing out on another season of Champions League football.

February 26, 2012 - Tottenham squander a two-goal lead to lose 5-2 at Arsenal. Louis Saha and Emmanuel Adebayor's penalty put them in charge within 34 minutes but Theo Walcott's double helps cap a spectacular comeback from the Gunners.

May 19, 2012 - Chelsea's penalty shoot-out win over Bayern Munich means they claim England's fourth Champions League place for next season. Spurs, who finish fourth in the Barclays Premier League, are relegated to the Europa League.
