HARRY REDKNAPP, the former Spurs and West Ham manager has led the condemnation of ‘cowardly’ chants at White Hart Lane

Redknapp, who has just taken over at Queen's Park Rangers, said that the level of abuse directed at managers and other supporters had reached dangerous levels. "When they [fans] are on their own they are probably different people but when they are together it's filth, it's disgusting," the 65-year-old said.

"People have to stand there and take it. They chant at managers, at players, at each other, it's nothing to do with football. You grow up watching football because you love the game, but if you asked half of them what happened in the game they probably wouldn't know; they're probably not even watching it. They're chanting at each other. We've all had it plenty of it at various times. They are just cowards who get in a group."
