Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is looking forward to the last 16 of the Champions League after drawing Serie A leaders AC Milan.

In their maiden season in the competition Tottenham have received plaudits after their attacking play led to them winning their group, which also contained holders Inter.

Indeed, Spurs' fine showing in the San Siro earlier on in the season has led Redknapp to eagerly relish the games ahead.

"It's a great draw. Whoever you draw is going to be tough but it's an exciting game to play. It's a game to look forward to," he said

"AC Milan, what have they won the trophy seven or eight times or whatever. Fantastic record, leading the league, top team in Italy, great players, it's a fantastic game to look forward to."

Ever the optimist, Redknapp is excited about the level of opponents that the Champions League brings to White Hart Lane.

"We look forward to it, it's a great challenge for us isn't it, they've got some real quality, fantastic players, but it's an exciting game," he added.

"It's a draw where I said before I wouldn't mind playing them, because you want to play the top teams in the world, that's what people want to see, so it's a great chance to bring them to White Hart Lane for a great game."
