Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp has blasted Tottenham fans for their "filthy" verbal abuse of Sol Campbell and warns that it is a growing problem in the game.

Campbell, 33, was so upset by the treatment he received in last Saturday´s 1-0 home defeat by Spurs that he called into BBC radio to publicly complain and believes the authorities must find a way of dealing with such behaviour.

Redknapp said: "How can we stop it? How can we legislate for grown men shouting things like that at Sol? I got some as well at Villa. What affected me most was that it was done in the presence of little children."
