The north London club have confirmed on their official website that the 64-year-old will undergo a medical procedure later today, which will mean he will miss the trip to Russia.

A short statement issued on late yesterday read: "The club can report that Harry Redknapp is due to undergo a medical procedure tomorrow morning and will therefore not travel with the squad to Russia for our Europa League fixture against Rubin Kazan.

"Kevin Bond and Joe Jordan will assume first team responsibilities in Russia in his absence."

Spurs go into the match in pole position in Group A at the midway stage.

Redknapp's men have picked up two wins and a draw from their first three matches, giving them a two-point advantage over PAOK and a three-point gap over tomorrow's rivals.
