Punters waste no time backing Redknapp for England


HARRY REDKNAPP’S acquittal has triggered a flurry of bets for him to be the next England manager, according to Ladbrokes.

Within seconds of being cleared of the charges punters sent the bookies’ phones and website into meltdown with bets for the Spurs boss to take over from Fabio Capello, forcing his price from 2/1 into 1/3 before suspension in a matter of minutes.

Patriotic punters have also piled into the 20/1 on offer that England win the 2018 World Cup under Redknapp.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “As soon as the verdict was known punters got stuck into Harry for England. If he does the business in Brazil it will cost us millions.”
