Harry Redknapp says he is 'delighted' that Tottenham have finished the Premier League season in fourth.

A 2-0 victory over Fulham at White Hart Lane means Spurs ended the campaign one point behind Arsenal and will now have to rely on Bayern Munich beating Chelsea next weekend if they are to reach next term's Champions League.

Goals from Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe secured a comfortable home success against Martin Jol's Cottagers, and despite claims that Tottenham could challenge for the title earlier in the season, Redknapp insists he could not have asked for any more from his players.

He said: "You think if you can break into the top four you'd be absolutely delighted and that's how I am. We finished fourth and I couldn't be more pleased.

"I was just concerned about us winning today, all that mattered was that we won the game. If we didn't win today Newcastle could have won at Everton and suddenly we'd be fifth.

"We can't do any more. Win today, finish fourth, I couldn't be more pleased with what the players have done here this year.

"If people start getting carried away about what Tottenham should be doing then I think they need a reality check."

On next weekend's Champions League final, he added: "Obviously I want Chelsea to win. I'm going (to Munich) and looking forward to it. My allegiance is Tottenham only, I want to see us in the Champions League next year."

Redknapp confirmed that Kyle Walker was not seriously injured despite limping off in the second half, although the Spurs manager seemed concerned at Younes Kaboul's knee problem, which also forced the Frenchman off.

"Kyle Walker's okay, he was limping out there a little bit but he'll be fine tomorrow," Redknapp said.

"He wasn't walking like that at half-time but he couldn't run properly. He got a kick on the ankle this time. Kyle will be okay for the Euros.

"Kaboul has a knee problem, it keeps blowing up his knee, it doesn't look great."

The Tottenham manager also admitted that he would be happy to see Manchester City's Adebayor return to the club on loan.

He said: "It's up to the chairman whether we could loan him again. I'd like to keep him, he's done great for us but we don't pay them wages. They (Manchester City) want him out of the way, that's why they let him go."
