Redknapp happy 'nightmare' is over

Published Add your comment

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp welcomed the final whistle on his bung slur "nightmare" on Wednesday after his acquittal for tax fraud cleared the way for him to land English football's top job.

Redknapp walked free from court on Wednesday lunchtime with a five-year police inquiry in tatters, prompting bookmakers to slash the odds on the 64-year-old becoming the next England boss.

Outside London's Southwark Crown Court, a tired-looking Redknapp, flanked by son Jamie, said: "It really has been a nightmare, I've got to be honest. It's been five years and this is a case that should never have come to court because it's unbelievable really."
