​Ex-Tottenham, West Ham boss Redknapp tries his hand at Gaelic football management

Former Tottenham and West Ham United manager Harry Redknapp says that he is enjoying his new career.

Redknapp took a step back from the English game and decided to coach a Gaelic football side.

And it appears the role at St. Andrews will be the last one he takes up as a professional manager.

He said the following to talkSPORT about his new gig: "I'm in Ireland, I'm been managing a Gaelic football team!"

"I'm filming a documentary, I'm managing one team and [former Chelsea and Watford boss] Gianluca Vialli is managing the other team.

"I've been here in a little village, Castlehaven they're called and I've had the most fantastic few days here.

"It's a beautiful part of the world. Great people. I've really enjoyed myself.

"I'm just on my way to the airport and I'm at the Bournemouth v Man United game tonight – you've got to keep going haven't you!"
