Harry Redknapp feels he would have been sacked even if Tottenham had qualified for the Champions League.

Spurs confirmed the 65-year-old's departure in the early hours of Thursday morning after negotiations over a contract extension with chairman Daniel Levy broke down.

"We finished fourth and were unlucky at the end, but I think the same outcome would have happened," Redknapp said on BBC Radio Five Live."Even if we had finished fourth, the chairman would have gone down the same road. But that is football."
