Harry Redknapp blasts Darren Bent after amazing miss

Harry Redknapp last night blasted Darren Bent after his amazing late miss and claimed: "My missus could have scored that."
The furious Tottenham boss blew his top on the touchline after Bent's amazing 80th minute howler and screamed at his coaching staff: "How the f***ing hell did he miss that?"
And Redknapp appeared to signal the end of Bent's Spurs career after the £16m striker wasted the chance to win all three points for Tottenham and lift them from bottom of the table to 12th.
Redknapp said: "It was a great chance. You are not going to get a better one than that to win a game. It was game over and we were going home with three points, as simple as that.
"My missus could have scored that. David James had given up on it. He had turned his back and was getting ready to pick the ball out of the net.
"He did not just have a bit to aim at, he had the whole goal to aim at. What can you do?
"He did not do it on purpose but we should have won the game. It's very frustrating because if he scores then you win all three points."
