Redknapp has not been charged, but after the police, accompanied by press photographers, carried out a dawn raid on his home 12 days ago, his reputation, he believes, has been tarnished. This was underlined by an unseemly run-in with the Villa fans on Saturday and Redknapp will not let the matter lie.
"I'm still uptight about what's gone on because it's been a disgrace what's happened to me, a disgrace," Redknapp said. "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."
