Redknapp heckled as he recieves freedom of his ex-city

Football manager Harry Redknapp faced boos and shouts of “Judas” as he arrived to be granted the freedom of the city of Portsmouth – the home of the club he quit just three days ago.

The 61-year-old left Portsmouth FC late on Saturday to take up his new post at Tottenham Hotspur.

Along with the players of his former club, Redknapp was honoured by Portsmouth City Council for their success in winning the FA Cup by beating Cardiff City 1-0 at Wembley in May.

The council decided to go ahead with the honour for Redknapp despite his departure from the city.

As he walked up to the stage in the Guildhall, there were loud boos from the public and shouts of “Judas”, while his replacement, Tony Adams, enjoyed loud cheers and chants of “Tony”.
