Harry Redknapp insists he holds no grudges against Roy Hodgson, even though the West Brom boss is set to inherit the England role he craved.

The Football Association stunned most observers when they went against public opinion and confirmed they had made an approach for Hodgson to replace Fabio Capello. Redknapp had been the overwhelming favourite, but despite taking Tottenham into the Champions League, it seems he is not what the FA were looking for.

"I don't hold grudges, I don't feel like that," said Redknapp on Monday morning. "There's no problem. If Roy takes the job I wish him all the best. He's a great guy. I'm sure he'll be a big success."
