Harry Redknapp has basically told The Times that he will be taking his grievance against his recent treatment all the way, quite possibly taking legal action following his recent ‘arrest’: ‘I’m still uptight about what’s gone on because it’s been a disgrace what’s happened to me, a disgrace.

‘I’m disgusted with the way I’ve been treated, I really am.

‘I’m taking it all the way, for sure. I’m not laying back.

‘No way am I going to stand back and let what’s happened to me happen. Not a chance. I will take it all the way’.

Redknapp has been visibly furious at what he has had to endure in recent weeks, he was furious at the way the whole thing was conducted when the police turned up at his house – with the media too! Why were they turning up at the same time as the police anyway?

He is turning his back on areas of the media – literally – and in his interviews recently even in his tone he has been really downbeat and is often taking a swipe at anyone he can. He really wanted the England job and still makes encrypted comments regarding why he would have been the right man but how his reputation was virtually destroyed with the way things were handled and how that cost him his chance.

I just feel so sorry for Redknapp, he might not be an angel but the manor in which recent events were handled – I have no doubt whatsoever that he had done anything wrong regarding these issues at all – were completely out of order and have really knocked his credibility, when he really had built this to an all-time high…

He has got to do what he feels best, and if whatever he does do does make him feel better and in some way makes up for the wrong doings against him so be it – from a selfish point of view I hope this does not impact on Pompey though, and distract him at all? Clearly some things are more important than football though, but we also still want his focus to also be on Pompey, which I am sure it will be.
