Redknapp: Berbatov will get a hot reception

Berbatov will return to White Hart Lane for the first time, following his deadline day move to Manchester United.

“Getting stick is part of the game. You leave a club and you get a bit of grief when you go back,” Redknapp said.

“We accept that, and it happens. As long as it’s not racist abuse or anything they’re entitled to shout, jeer or boo or whatever they want to do.

“Berbatov might get some stick but he won’t get the type of abuse Sol got, which was definitely out of order.

“Alex (Sir Alex Ferguson, United boss) would tell them that there is only one way to keep them quiet and that is to put the ball in the back of the net. That is what I would say to a player.”
