The former England boss feels the Spurs manager has been hard done by, and believes that there was an "obvious power struggle" between him and chairman Daniel LevySteve McClaren has stated that Harry Redknapp's sacking at Tottenham is a shame for the club, the players and the fans.
Redknapp left White Hart Lane on Wednesday after almost four years in north London, having guided the club back to the top four and Champions League football, and McClaren also says he does not think the decision was made for footballing reasons.
"I think it's a shame for Tottenham, I think it's a shame for the players, and a shame for the fans," McClaren told the BBC.
"I don't think it's really a footballing decision because what more can Harry Redknapp do, from taking them from second-bottom, to where they are now?"

"There's obviously a power struggle going on between the manager and the chairman, that is normal in a football club," McClaren continued.
"When you go in as a manager you want a certain amount of control and you fight for that control, sometimes you fight hard with the chairman for that control.
"The relationship the chairman has with the manager is the most important in a football club, if that breaks down then you're going to get problems."
