Ex-Spurs boss Redknapp cools Airdrie rumours

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has cooled talk of buying a Scottish club.

Redknapp has been linked with a buyout of Airdrie.

A report claimed the English legend was involved in talks with the League One club's co-owner Paul Hetherington to buy a controlling interest.

Redknapp told The Sun: “Ever since I said recently I fancied a return to football I've been inundated with hundreds of messages from clubs.

“I do like the idea of an involvement again from the football side of things – but I certainly won't be putting money into a club.

“It's true that I spoke with the Airdrie chairman and he seemed a decent fella. I was also impressed with what he had to say.

“But I'm certainly not trying to buy Airdrie – and I can honestly say that it won't be going any further.

“I appreciated their interest.

“But there won't be anything happening there."
