Former Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp admits he would have loved the opportunity to manage Liverpool.

Speaking on The Clare Balding Show, Redknapp also admitted to being impressed by his former club AFC Bournemouth after they all but sealed promotion to the Premier League, but ruled out a return to the seaside club.

"If I had managed a club, I would have liked to have managed Liverpool," answered Redknapp. "I think it’s a fantastic atmosphere.

"When that crowd before the game sing ’You’ll Never Walk Alone’ – I just think it’s amazing. The hairs stand up on the back of your neck, it’s an incredible place and a great football club."

The 68-year-old was appearing on the new series of The Clare Balding Show which airs tomorrow night at 19:30 on BT Sport Two. Alternatively, you can watch the show on BBC Two on Friday night at 22:00.

The former Tottenham and Portsmouth continued: "At the moment I am enjoying watching football, last night I went to watch Bournemouth play. It’s incredible.

"I managed them for almost 10 years but what this young guy has done, Eddie Howe, he has come in and took them into the Premier League. Five or six years ago they were almost going out of business."

When asked whether he would return as an Assistant to Howe Redknapp replied: "No, no. I’ll let him get on with it. He has done good enough on his own, he doesn’t need me."

Redknapp won the Football League Division Three in 1987 with the Cherries but Howe has greatly surpassed that achievement. Bournemouth will be in the Premier League for the first time in the club's history, barring a 19-0 defeat to Charlton on Saturday.

Do you think Bournemouth have what it takes to stay up? If not, who do you think they should sign to stay in the Premier League next season?
