Holloway: The day I rejected Tottenham boss Redknapp

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has revealed the time he rejected Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp.

Redknapp was just starting out in management at Bournemouth when he attempted to snap up midfielder Holloway.

But the Blackpool boss rejected the chance to move to the Cherries - and reckons Redknapp has never forgiven him.

Spurs visit Bloomfield Road tomorrow and Holloway is expecting plenty of stick from Redknapp.

He said: "Harry tried to sign me, but I went somewhere else instead.

"It shows you what I know! I'm not sure if Harry has forgiven me.

"No doubt, he'll remind me when he sees me."
