Harry Redknapp Reveals Which Of His Former Players He Wants In The Jungle
Harry Redknapp was expected to spend all his dingo dollars on Niko Kranjcar or a big man/little man strike force of Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch but he's revealed which of his ex players he'd like in the jungle and it's none of them.
Seeing Harry Redknapp in the 'I'm a Celebrity' jungle has been 'triffic' for all football fan and the former Spurs and West Ham manager has been telling some excellent stories.
On Wednesday night he talked about how he had gone on safari with some of his players and didn't think there was any need to go on safari for longer than three days, taking a massive dump on many people's dream holidays.
Heading into the jungle most people were expecting Redknapp to take former player Niko Kranjcar with him as a luxury item, having signed the Croatian midfielder three times in his career.
However in a twist the ex footballer revealed the former player he'd like to have with him was actually former West Ham charge Rio Ferdinand:
Perhaps the highlight of Redknapp's time down under so far though has been his enjoyment, or lack thereof, of the food being served up to him and his campmates most days.
You feel the 71 year old is more accustomed to steak and kidney pie than the quail, wallabee and other exotic animals that have been on the menu so far.
On Wednesday night the former FA Cup winner was distraught to find out the camp had missed out on roly poly for desert after Nick Knowles and Emily Attack had won a challenge only for the rest of the camp to get a question wrong.
Learning about the missed opportunity Harry said, "Jam Roly Poly pudding, I just love it,
"What I would f****** Jam Roly Poly pudding. We'll probably have Kangaroo wings or something tonight."
Seeing Redknapp alongside any of his former players in a Bushtucker Trial would certainly make for entertaining television and Ferdinand would be excellent value on television.
We're still expecting a mention for Kranjcar at some point, he was a top top player after all.
