Tony Adams has signed for Portsmouth as assistant manager. This has come after false articles in the News of The World claiming that an Israeli would get the job.

Harry is delighted to have Tony working alongside him, he told the club website, ‘Tony can do a great job for us, he knows the game inside out and I’m really looking forward to him working alongside me.’

Tony Adams couldn`t have praised Harry anymore if he`d tried;

He said: ‘Harry’s a guy I respect and one I’d love to work with.

‘He (Redknapp) obviously thinks a lot of me to approach me and I’ve got a lot of admiration for him. The respect I’ve got for him is second to none, he’s a great man.

‘I love the character he is. He seems really honest and that’s all I’ve ever wanted, to work for people who are like that.’
