Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has criticised the Football Association for allowing speculation about the England manager's job rumble on for almost three months.
Redknapp was installed as the overwhelming favourite to become England's next head coach in February after Fabio Capello resigned, but the FA this week appointed West Brom boss Roy Hodgson instead.
"It did drag on," Redknapp said. "I don't know why they didn't do it six weeks ago? What was the big problem? West Brom weren't going to go down."
