Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has condemned Mario Balotelli for the stamp on Scott Parker he felt should have led to the Manchester City striker being sent off in Sunday's Barclays Premier League encounter at the Etihad Stadium.

Goals from Samir Nasri, Joleon Lescott, Jermain Defoe and Gareth Bale ensured the scores were level, so that Balotelli scored the injury-time penalty to seal a dramatic 3-2 win for the hosts only made matters worse.

The controversial Italian got involved in a tangle with Parker during the second half, and Redknapp asked: "What reason did he have to backheel Scott in the head with his studs when he is laying on the floor?"
