Jamie Redknapp's face after going toe-to-toe with Roy Keane as Matt Doherty caught in the crossfire
After five minutes of verbal jolting with Roy Keane, Jamie Redknapp had the face of a man who'd gone 12 rounds with Muhammad Ali himself.
Spurs were the subject and nobody was safe, not even Matt Doherty, burned badly in the crossfire by his own compatriot.
"Does anyone really think Doherty is going to make Spurs a top four team?" a hysterical Keane askedx as the showdown reached boiling point.
Graeme Souness tried to intervene but couldn't get to the pitch of it. It's not often you see the Edinburgh man so subdued but in fairness, maybe he was just enjoying the show like the rest of us. Jimmy Floyd Hasslebaink was beckoned to the table but Jimmy Floyd was soon sat down. Roy Keane was spitting fire and Jamie Redknapp was in his sights.
As the Premier League edges towards an inevitable conclusion, certainly at the prestigious end of the table, it seems that the most exciting thing about the whole pageant these days is the goings-on at the Sky Sports studio. The Sky Sports studio when a certain Cork man is on the stage.
This time around, Spurs were the topic of discussion and while Jamie Redknapp batted for his old club, Keane was having none of it and what transpired was five minutes of tv gold.
