Harry Redknapp has been named the Premier League Manager of the Year after guiding Tottenham Hotspur into next season’s Champions League qualification for the first time.

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson had been tipped to win the accolade after leading the Cottagers to the Europa League final, but it was Redknapp who won it after taking a team that was bottom of the league when he arrived at White Hart Lane 19 months ago into the top four.

Spurs could even finish third if they beat Burnley in their final game on Sunday and Arsenal slip up against Fulham.

"I'm delighted to receive the award but it's a team effort with Kevin (Bond), Joe (Jordan), Clive (Allen), Tony (Parks), Tim (Sherwood), Les (Ferdinand) and all the coaching and fitness staff," Redknapp told the club's website.

"Really, I'm just part of the team.

"It's all down to the players and what they've achieved. It's down to them really and a real honour to receive it."

Redknapp has now become the second manager to win the award without having won the league since the new formation of the Premier League was adopted in 1992/93. George Burley was first to break the mould after Ipswich Town finished fifth in 2000/01.
