Redknapp had won one and drawn three of his four games in charge before Saturday's defeat at St James' Park, after which he said: "There are a lot of players at this club who earn far too much money."
But on Monday he played down the remarks, saying: "I wasn't talking about all the players, I was talking about certain players I felt were earning and hadn't given value."
"It's just I feel one or two have let us down in the last couple of weeks. I've seen one or two incidents that have disturbed me. That's why I brought that up. It disturbs me when a player doesn't want to sit on the bench when you're bang in trouble."
