'Fantastic draw' - Harry

Harry Redknapp described our Champions League draw against AC Milan as 'fantastic' and 'a great challenge'.

We were paired with the Serie A giants in Friday morning's draw at Nyon, Switzerland.

As group winners, we will travel to the San Siro in the first leg with the second leg at the Lane a fortnight later.

We travel to the San Siro for the first leg on Tuesday, February 15 with the return at the Lane on Wednesday, March 9.

It will be the second time we've travelled to the San Siro this season after taking on Inter in the group stages.

AC are currently top of Serie A, six points clear of Juventus having lost just twice.

They include the attacking prowess of Ronaldinho, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Pato, Robinho and Italian legends Gennaro Gattuso, Gianluca Zambrotta, Andrea Pirlo and Alessandro Nesta.

"It's a great draw and we knew that would be the case whoever we came out against," said Harry.

"This is an exciting game to look forward to.

"AC Milan have a fantastic record in the competition, they are top of the league in Italy and are full of quality players.

"It's a great challenge for us.

"I said before the draw that I wouldn't mind playing AC Milan.

"You want to take on the best teams in the world and that's what the fans want to see as well.

"Now we've got the chance to bring AC Milan to White Hart Lane for a great game."
