Spurs boss praises opposition striker

Harry Redknapp paid tribute to Fulham striker Bobby Zamora following Tottenham's goalless draw with the Cottagers. There were few chances in the Boxing Day clash at White Hart Lane but Redknapp was impressed by the way former Spurs forward Zamora worked for his team. Redknapp is on the lookout for a new striker in the January transfer window and he concedes he would love to have somebody like Zamora at his disposal. He said: "I thought Bobby Zamora was outstanding, in the first half he held the ball up very well. I wish he was still at Tottenham. "They let him go and maybe thought he wasn't good enough. Maybe he wasn't good enough when they (Dimitar) Berbatov, (Robbie) Keane and (Jermain) Defoe but he looks all right to me."

Bellamy

Spurs have had a bid turned down for West Ham's Craig Bellamy and Redknapp believes Manchester City must be considered favourites to sign the Welshman. "We're short in certain areas to make the difference," Redknapp said. "We made an offer and it got turned down so I don't know where we go from there. "I think Manchester City are in for him and if that is the case it is difficult for anybody to compete with them." Redknapp added: "Where are you going to find a striker? Who is going to sell them? That is all I do all day. You can find someone from Moldova or wherever - but I'm not taking chances."
Gomes
Turning his focus back to the match with Fulham, Redknapp heaped praise on goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, who made a couple of crucial saves and looked assured throughout. "He's done well recently and for £10million he should be half decent," Redknapp said. "When he was as bad as he looked you were thinking 'this can't be right'. "He's now showing what we thought he could be - a top goalkeeper - and a lot of credit goes to Tony Parks who has been working hard with. "He's instilled confidence and we are starting to see the benefits."
