Portsmouth boss Redknapp raps Hiddink candidacy

Harry Redknapp has not ruled himself out of the running for the vacant England manager's job - but doubts he will be among the front-runners.

England's failure to qualify for Euro 2008 has cost Steve McClaren his job, and the Portsmouth boss told Sky Sports News: "I don't think anybody would. Anybody would love to manage the country, sure, but I wouldn't see it coming my way to be truthful. It's all ifs and buts. All I am worried about is going to Birmingham on Saturday and getting three points.

"Who knows who they will appoint now? I have seen (Russia coach) Guus Hiddink's name being mentioned, (but) he couldn't get a result in Israel on Saturday when he really wanted it so, I don't know."
