Pompey chairman Milan Mandaric has said that Portsmouth will make a fresh bid for Celtic`s playmaker Petrov.

‘Harry Redknapp wants the player and we are backing Harry’s judgment. We’ll be back to Celtic in the next few days,’ said Mandaric.

‘There is a situation which needs to be resolved and I’m disappointed by what Celtic had to say about our bid for Petrov.

‘But we’ll go back to them and get to the bottom of the problem between us. I don’t want to get into a war of words.’

In other news- Apparently a coach from Israel called “Avram Grant” will become assistant manager. Vital Pompey understands that this post will be going to Tony Adams however I also believe more than one coach will be employed.
