Roy Keane has had a heated exchange with Jamie Redknapp as to whether Tottenham are an average team - and fit in a dig at former charge Matt Doherty.
Redknapp denied that Tottenham were an 'average' team, due to the fact that it was full of international players.

"That doesn't make you a good player," Keane said of appearing for an international side. "Playing for your country doesn't make you a great player. If you can trap the ball you can play for your country these days. It doesn't make you a great player.
"Dier has been giving goals away every week, last week he gave the ball away."
Keane believes that this iteration of Tottenham is no more than middling, and not better than the Spurs team of a few years ago.
Roy Keane on Spurs
"I think Spurs were a better side a few years ago with the Trippiers, Eriksens and when Alli had the hunger. Spurs are good on their day, like lots of teams.
"Jamie says there that this team is full of internationals, if you trap the ball now you'll play for your country. Everybody plays for their country, if you don't play for your country, you are a bad player.
"Which of these players would get into the Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea teams? You wouldn't touch any of them."
Keane took a moment to have a cut off a current Republic of Ireland player.
"Doherty was playing for Wolves, who have played well the last couple of years, they sell him to Spurs for £15m, Doherty. Does anyone really think Doherty is going to turn Spurs into a top-four team? Doherty? Doherty, really?"
