“When we went 1-0 down, he kept looking in saying: ‘Don’t cry, Harry. It isn’t that important.’
“We took about 30 fans up there in one coach and they were singing ‘Harry Redknapp’s Red and White Army’.
“Then the bloke started again. ‘It’s like the Kop singing for Dalglish, isn’t it Harry?’
“He never stopped. I had a player sitting next to me called Tom Heffernan.
“He was the hardest man I have ever met in football.
“His party trick was heading cricket balls. “He offered to keep the fan quiet but I told him to leave it.
“Anyway, we won the game 3-1. I looked round and he had gone.
“I’ve never been back there since.”
