Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp practically wrote off his side's chances of making the knockout stages of the Europa League after Wednesday night's 2-1 defeat to 10-man PAOK Salonika at White Hart Lane.

After an encouraging start to their European campaign, Spurs' hopes of qualifying from Group A are now out of their hands. The Londoners must overhaul the five-goal goal difference that separates them from Rubin Kazan in the final round of matches next month, with the Russians heading to Greece next month to play PAOK just needing a draw.

"I am disappointed now because we are not going to be in the last 32," Redknapp said. "It's very slim - it is very difficult now. I wanted to stay in the competition but it wasn't to be. Full credit to the opposition, they worked hard and looked dangerous."
