Redknapp plays down Tottenham title bid after draw

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp played down Spurs' title ambitions after his side drew with Wolves to miss the chance to go joint top of the league.

The north Londoners would have gone level with Manchester United and Manchester City if they had won.

"I've never said to anybody that we ar e going to win the league. If we can get a Champions League position again, it will be great for us," said Redknapp.

"Today it wouldn't quite drop for us but we're still on a great run."

Tottenham enhanced their title credentials with the midweek home win over Everton which took them level on points with United.

But Redknapp's side failed to find their best form at White Hart Lane against dogged Wolves, who took the lead through Steven Fletcher before Luka Modric levelled for the hosts.

And the Spurs boss insists that they are aiming for a top four spot, rather than a first league title since 1961.

"I only answered the question of if it is possible," he said. "And, of course it is possible.

"Man City and Man United will be red hot favourites but, if we have a fantastic run in the second half like we have had in the first half of the season, it could happen."

Redknapp said the draw with Wolves highlighted the strength of the Premier League.

"You can't win every week," he said. "Wolves worked their socks off and defended for their lives. They are not just going to roll over. A point's a point."

The 64-year-old also played down the possibility of bolstering his squad during the January transfer window.

"I'm off to watch a game [on Sunday] but I haven't got anyone in mind I'd like to sign, unless I could find someone who I thought could make a difference to us."

However, on Sunday morning, Redknapp told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek programme that he was flying to Marseille to watch 25-year-old striker Loic Remy.

"I watched him about 18 months ago and I'm going to have another look," he said.

"I've had reports on him. I'd be doubtful if anything happens but I've got to keep looking."

After seeing his side edge a point clear of danger, Wolves boss Mick McCarthy praised top scorer Steven Fletcher, whose strike put the men from Molineux ahead.

"He is one of those rare commodities," said McCarthy. "A talented footballer who does everything else as well. He runs back for you, blocks shots and puts himself about.

"I'm delighted with the result because I thought we deserved something."
